  • Overview

    1. Grand County is the county most profoundly affected by water diversions in Colorado, with as much as 80% of its native waters transferred out of the watershed. Access to clean, abundant water is a requirement for any healthy economy, but especially for Grand County, which requires water to sustain our many outdoor recreational opportunities including skiing, fishing, boating and hunting, as well as agriculture, industry, municipalities and unincorporated areas. Grand County takes an active role in the stewardship of this precious, finite resource both for current residents and visitors, and for the benefit of future generations.

    2. Results

      Annually: Ensure all negotiated enhancements and requirements of the Colorado River Cooperative Agreement and Windy Gap Firming Project Inter-Governmental Agreement are implemented.

      By September 2022, construct the Colorado River Headwaters Connectivity Channel to take Windy Gap Reservoir off-channel and restore habitat connectivity and fish populations to as near pre-reservoir construction levels as possible.
