Programs and Projects

 
 

Grant Program

The Colorado River District grant program funds projects that protect, enhance or develop water resources in the 15-county area covered by the District. This includes all watersheds in north- and central- western Colorado, except the San Juan River basin.

Water Marketing

Colorado River Basin water supplies are available for contract through the Colorado River District.  The Colorado River supplies are available from Wolford Mountain Reservoir located on Muddy Creek, a tributary of the Colorado River near Kremmling and from contracted supplies through the District from Ruedi Reservoir located on the Fryingpan River, a tributary of the Roaring Fork River. 

Elkhead Reservoir

First conceived in 1990, the enlargement of Elkhead Reservoir is designed to provide additional water for endangered fish and human uses in the Yampa River Basin. Several public and private agencies are combining efforts on the enlargement of Elkhead Reservoir.  

Wolford Mountain Reservoir

Wolford Mountain Reservoir, owned and operated by the Colorado River District, provides water for Colorado's future, enhanced wetlands and recreational opportunities.
