Voters' Guide to Water Issues

October 12, 2020!


Dear Voter,

Roaring Fork Conservancy is pleased to present our new online edition of the Voters’ Guide to Water Issues in the Roaring Fork Watershed. The importance of water in Colorado is heightened as the drought continues and we plan for the future of our limited water resources. Roaring Fork Conservancy focuses on water quality, water quantity and riparian health, addressing these issues via river science, water policy, and educating citizens on current issues.

Knowledgeable elected officials help us protect vital water resources. With the upcoming election, we wanted to give citizens an opportunity to hear from candidates on local water issues and their proposed solutions. Roaring Fork Conservancy asked candidates in local, state, and federal races for their responses to two water-related questions. This guide presents a non-biased forum for candidates to express their qualifications and platforms on water issues affecting the Roaring Fork Watershed and the state of Colorado.

Roaring Fork Conservancy does not endorse any candidates. Their unedited responses are presented as submitted.

We encourage you to vote, whether by mail or at a polling location on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Your voice is an important part of helping us bring people together to protect our rivers.


Rick Lofaro
Executive Director
