    November marked the one-year anniversary of the CWCB Board voting to approve the final Colorado's Water Plan and deliver it to Governor Hickenlooper and the people of Colorado, a plan that would ensure that the state's most valuable resource is protected and available for generations to come. To get to that moment, it took 30 months of drafting, 3 draft water plans, 8 Basin Implementation Plans, 30,000 public comments, and many years of discussions.


    As this achievement was celebrated a year ago, all those involved knew that the hardest part was in front of them – implementing the objectives, goals, and actions Coloradans developed in order to move the state forward together. Coloradans have been hard at work doing just that over this past year. And they will continue to do so for many years to come to ensure our state finds solutions and strategies that balance our diverse water needs and move the state forward together.


    In honor of the hard work of the basin roundtables, Interbasin Compact Committee, state agencies, water community at-large, and citizens of Colorado, Governor Hickenlooper issued a proclamation declaring November 16, 2016 as Colorado's Water Plan Implementation Day in the State of Colorado.
