DARCA is involving ditch and reservoir companies in Colorado's Water Plan by hosting four free workshops across Colorado during July.

Colorado's Water Plan is a state driven effort to help find solutions to the ever increasing demand for water.  With the vision of prosperous ditch companies, DARCA's workshops will involve presentations on the state water plan and also ditch company planning.  The workshops have the focus of soliciting input concerning the state water plan from ditch and reservoir companies and their farmer/rancher shareholders.  The workshops also have the purpose of informing ditch companies on the importance of their own internal planning so that they can do well in an uncertain future.

Image It is essential that ditch companies and their farmer/rancher base become better informed about the Colorado State Water Plan. More importantly it is critical that these water rights’ holders become stakeholders in the planning process. DARCA will be holding a series of four workshops in the May/June/July period to explain the process of the state water plan and will be soliciting input from the attendees. Additionally, at these workshops ditch company planning will also be addressed. DARCA will be compiling this input from the ditch companies and will relay this information to officials working with the Colorado State Water Plan through a written report and oral presentations at meetings.

This information will include recommendations regarding;
  • (1) preventing dry up of agricultural lands;
  • (2) increasing investments in ditch upgrades in order to save water;
  • (3) promoting alternative transfer methods of agricultural water;
  • (4) increasing urban efficiency and reuse;
  • (5) incorporating risk and uncertainty into water plan decision making; and
  • (6) other recommendations that will arise out of the interaction with ditch company representatives.
