Who has the right to the water in Grand County?
And how does water in Grand County end up flowing over the Continental Divide?
Here at UCRWG, we’re fighting to protect the health and sustainability of the Upper Colorado River watershed for the long-term. To us, that means keeping the water that is in the watershed flowing through our streams and rivers, NOT increasing how much water is sent over to the Front Range before it even hits our watershed. Why? Because we see proposed increases in transbasin water diversions as threatening the ecological stability of the watershed as a whole.
But what are transbasin diversions? What’s going on with water in Grand County? And how is UCRWG President Andy Miller connected to your last overnight trip to the Broome hut?
