Your Watershed / Roaring Fork Watershed Plan

Roaring Fork Watershed Plan

(The Roaring Fork Watershed Plan & Recommended Actions can be accessed here.)

The Roaring Fork Watershed Plan is the product of over four years of effort by more than a hundred people, representing dozens of agencies, governments, and interests throughout the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. The Plan is the culmination of countless meetings, conversations, debates, and iterations, all of them aimed at creating a document that will be meaningful and useful to both water managers and the general public.  

The Plan had its origins in the work of the Roaring Fork Watershed Collaborative, an informal gathering of local officials, planners, resource managers, and interested citizens, which began meeting on an irregular basis in 2002. Collaborative members concluded that water, as one of the critical resources common to the entire valley, deserved special attention. This led to the formation of a Water Committee in 2005. The Water Committee, in turn, began formulating the outline of a Watershed Plan aimed at surveying and assessing the condition of our local water resources and recommending actions to preserve those resources.  

Why do we need a Watershed Plan? Water is one of our most precious natural resources and one which can readily be physically removed from the watershed by transmountain diversions. Local water resources are also threatened by global climate change, pollution from both natural and man‐made sources, and overuse.
