Why is it important to develop a water conservation plan?


Water conservation is a key element of overall water resource planning. Long-term water conservation planning is needed to extend Colorado’s water supply as demands on it increase from a growing population. By setting goals to promote and ensure water use efficiency, wise water use, water transmission and distribution system efficiency, and supply substitution, water suppliers can increase long-term productive use of their water supply in order to satisfy customer needs without compromising desired water services.
