Current Status of Water Management Planning
Tracy Bouvette, Nina Nichols and Sanjit Kundu
One of the central assessment themes evaluated by the Drought &
Water Supply Assessment regards the preparedness of water users
for drought in Colorado – in the past, present and future.
The assessment instrument was designed to deliver information on
each of the following subjects:
- Water supply planning
- Drought management planning components and mechanisms
- Drought tools utilized
- Water conservation planning
- Water conservation tools used
The results of the data collection and analysis efforts are discussed
in this chapter including a presentation of how many entities have
formal drought and water conservation planning in place, by geography
and segment, and what types of drought and conservation tools are
most effective for each participant’s particular location
and water use. Significant differences that exist regarding planning
and standard practices between municipal and agricultural water
users are highlighted.
