The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) was created nearly 75 years ago to provide policy direction on water issues. The CWCB is Colorado’s most comprehensive water information resource. The agency maintains expertise in a broad range of programs and provides technical assistance to further the utilization of Colorado’s waters.
The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) represents each major water basin, Denver and other state agencies in our joint effort to use water wisely and protect our water for future generations.
The purpose of the Colorado Water Stewardship Project is to ensure that Colorado Water Congress members and water stakeholders from around the state are prepared for any ballot initiative that might be of interest to the Colorado water community. The Project guides CWC's ballot initiative work consisting of legal challenges, public polling and messaging.
Join us on Tuesday, March 12 at 12:00 PM for a Colorado Water Stewardship Project Webinar. Our panelists will review the proposed initiatives currently filed for the 2019 ballot, an overview of the Stream Access Litigation case (Hill v. Warsewa) addressing access to rivers in Colorado and CWSP's recent efforts.
Our panelists will also give us an update on how the new changes in administration have impacted the Colorado water community thus far.

High Line Canal Clean-Up Scheduled for Saturday, March 16, 2019
Volunteers and segment leaders are needed to clear trash and debris from the eleven mile stretch of the canal that runs through the city of Aurora. The goal for the day is to reduce the amount of trash being discharged from the Canal to Sand Creek and to Toll Gate Creek. Along with the benefits from the outdoor exercise, the event is also an excellent opportunity to learn about the problems caused from littering and the importance of protecting our waterways.
To register, click here and scroll down to the High Line Canal opportunity. Interested people will need to create a volunteer profile. This is needed to help organizers communicate with volunteers.
The volunteer registration website has a downloadable Volunteer waiver. Every volunteer is required to have a waiver completed prior to working on the High Line Canal. If the portal is proving cumbersome or if you have questions, please feel free to contact Lottia Villalba
