Question

What is the difference between the Statewide Account and the Basin Accounts?

Answer

Both accounts are for water activities in Colorado’s river basins.

The Statewide Account is available to any Basin Roundtable. Applications for monies from this Account will be reviewed by the Colorado Water Conservation Board in March and September of each year. Since any Basin Roundtable can apply for money from the Statewide Account it is generally believed that obtaining money from the Statewide Account will be more competitive. Consequently, the Colorado Water Conservation Board will undertake a more detailed evaluation of applications for funds from this Account as described in the Criteria and Guidelines.
 
The Basin Accounts were developed to ensure that 1 million dollars would be reserved for each basin until January 2010. This money does not automatically disperse to the individual basins. An applicant must still go through the same process as the Statewide Account with the exception that the Colorado Water Conservation Board will utilize fewer criteria when evaluating applications. Applications for monies from the Basin Account will be reviewed by the Colorado Water Conservation Board in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Any monies not utilized by basins by January 2010 will be transferred to the Statewide Account.
