Linking Land Use & Water: Tools to Grow Water-Smart

Colorado’s statewide water plan acknowledges the impacts of population growth to our state’s agricultural heritage, our river systems, and our limited water supply. It also recognizes the need for communities that are water-wise and that, by design, help to stretch Colorado’s water resources and preserve our high quality of life.

This full-day workshop explored the legal framework that underlies Colorado’s efforts to regulate water use and to provide best practices for local communities. In bringing together land use planners, water providers, policy makers, lawyers, and other stakeholders, the workshop provided the foundation for strong, interdisciplinary planning efforts that integrate water and land use planning to maximize water efficiency and conservation.
