Pilot System Water Conservation Program

 "Facing declining levels in Lakes Powell and Mead, the Upper Colorado River Commission (UCRC) is testing methods for saving water that could be part of a drought contingency plan for the Upper Basin of the Colorado River, which includes New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming.  The UCRC is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to invite users of Colorado River System water in the four Upper Division States to submit proposals for a pilot program water conservation projects.  All users of Colorado River water, including the San Juan and Animas rivers in New Mexico, are encouraged to consider developing a pilot project for consideration under this RFP.  Approximately $1.8 million has been committed towards one-year projects to be completed in calendar year 2017 that demonstrate the effectiveness of temporary, compensated, and voluntary Colorado River water savings."
