Basin Roundtable Membership

The basin roundtables bring more than 300 citizens into water discussions across the state. The diversity of basin roundtable membership broadens the range of stakeholders who are actively participating in Colorado’s water decisions.

Each basin roundtable consists of:

Designated Members
  • One member appointed by each county within the roundtable’s boundaries
  • One member appointed jointly by all the municipalities within any county in the roundtable’s boundaries
  • One member appointed by each water conservancy and water conservation district within the roundtable’s boundaries
  • One member appointed jointly by the chairpersons of the Colorado House and Senate Agriculture Committees
10 At-Large Members (appointed by the designated members in consultation with the Director of Compact Negotiations)
  • One representing agricultural interests
  • One representing recreational interests
  • One representing local, domestic water providers
  • One representing industrial interests
  • One representing environmental interests – selected from eligible candidates representing established Colorado environmental organizations
  • At least 5 of the 10 at-large roundtable members must own water rights or have a contract for federal water
Colorado Water Conservation Board
The CWCB Board member from the basin serves as the liaison between the roundtable and the CWCB.

Non-Voting Members (appointed by the full roundtable membership)
Non-voting members must own water rights or have a contract for federal water to represent out-of-basin water interests within the roundtable’s boundaries, or representatives that have interests in and are knowledgeable about water matters.
