Colorado Green Now

 Early in 2022, at the start of the Water ’22 campaign spearheaded by Water Education Colorado, all of us were challenged to “take the pledge” to find ways to:

  • Conserve at least 22 gallons of water use per day.
  • Learn more about where Colorado’s water comes from and ways to protect it.
  • Find ways to live with less.

Similarly, Colorado WaterWise’s statewide, public education campaign on water conservation, Live Like You Love ItSM asks Coloradans to commit to learning more about water issues and to being an active voice for good stewardship of this precious resource.

This year is also important for the Colorado Water Plan. Originally released in 2015, it is under development and the revised Water Plan will be released early in 2023. The development process for the 2023 Water Plan included a robust stakeholder engagement process to consider feedback and concerns with the original 2015 Plan, followed by an initial drafting phase. The draft version is currently available for public review during a 90-day public comment period from June 30 – September 30, 2022. Public comments can be submitted through For those who want to review or comment, now it the time.

The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) which creates and manages the Plan's framework, reported that by 2020 the original 2015 Plan had made 76% progress on identified actions and funding for more than 240 water projects across the state after just five years.

Each of us plays a role in consciously conserving water use every day. Are you living like you love it?
