2014 Interim Bills

CWC State Affairs Positions

The Water Resources Review Committee held its final meeting on October 30th when they voted on draft legislation to present to the Legislative Council on November 14. In order to move a bill forward, the ten member committee was required to pass it by a 2/3 vote.

Learn which bills moved forward, and the position of the CWC State Affairs Committee on these bills.

Our New Board Members

Reflecting CWC's Diverse Interests

Please join the Colorado Water Congress in welcoming nine new Directors to our Board! The 34 person CWC Board of Directors reflects the diverse geographic and professional interests of Colorado’s water community.

We had an opportunity to create five new Board seats- Federal Affairs Liaison, Attorney General, Environmental, Upper Colorado River, and Irrigated Agriculture. We hope that you are equally as excited about these new additions and will spend some time to get to know the people who contribute their time and energy to sustaining the Water Congress.


South Platte Forum

CWC POND Fundraises for Flood Relief

On October 23, at the annual South Platte Forum, the CWC Professional Outreach, Networking, and Development (POND) Committee held a fundraiser in response to the September floods. The silent auction raised $4,000 in total: $1,990 for the Red Cross' Colorado Flood Fund and $2,010 for the Colorado Farm Bureau's Disaster Fund.

Thank you to everybody who organized, attended, or donated to the event!
