2018 Drought in the Roaring Fork Watershed

Colorado's dry 2017-2018 winter has led us into a dry summer. As water users, we all depend on the ecosystems, energy, food, and industries supported by water in this arid Western landscape.

Roaring Fork Conservancy’s is paying attention to the effects low snowpack and rainfall are having on the rivers and streams of the Roaring Fork Watershed. Please check back here often to learn about our efforts, and resources and information relevant to the drought conditions experienced in Western Colorado.
