Yampa-White-Green Basin Roundtable Announcements

The Yampa-White-Green Basin Roundtable would like to congratulate Ken Brenner for receiving the Yampa-White-Green Basin Hero award from CWCB.  This award recognizes individuals from each of the basins who were instrumental in bringing the updated Plan to fruition.  

The Yampa-White-Green Basin Roundtable would like to recognize the hard work CWCB did on the release of the updated Colorado Water Plan. The final draft of the 2023 Colorado Water Plan was approved by the CWCB Board on January 24th.

STRATEGIES FOR CURRENT AND FUTURE BASIN WATER NEEDS

The Yampa White Green Basin Roundtable (YWG BRT) process offers local communities the opportunity to have a strong voice in how water will be managed now and in the future. This unique grassroots process does not exist in other states where water planning is more commonly conducted at the state agency level.

AGRICULTURE

While it is common for agricultural areas in Colorado to be water-short, agricultural shortages represent a real need and opportunity for improvement. In addition, the YWG Basin is the only basin in the State projecting the addition of up to 14,805 irrigated acres.

MUNICIPAL & INDUSTRIAL

As the YWG Basin continues to grow, its M&I water needs must be identified and addressed. We reiterate that the later development of the YWG Basin and the junior status of its water rights portfolio among Colorado River Basin tributaries is of concern.

NON-CONSUMPTIVE

Environmental and recreational water uses are critical to the economy and way of life in the YWG Basin. The YWG BRT recognizes the economic value of the relatively natural flow regimes of the Yampa and White river systems.

The Yampa-White-Green Basin Roundtable help fund a six-episode video series that covers the rivers in the basin and topics that are important to the roundtable.  Topics include: the natural hydrograph, municipal and industrial water use, storage, agriculture, recreation and wildlife, White River.
