Colorado River Cooperative Agreement (CRCA)

You have heard of the Moffat Firming Project. You have heard about Grand County’s negotiations with Denver Water. Now learn about the enhancements for improving the Colorado and Fraser rivers.

Grand County, Denver Water, and the Colorado River District, and 25 other West Slope partners have negotiated a “global agreement” on transmountain diversions and water management. Grand County’s goal in the negotiations was to make Grand County’s rivers and streams  better than they are today, and put in place procedures that would, to the greatest extent possible, preserve and protect our water resources for the future.
