Click here to read about Utah’s 2023 accomplishments in the Colorado River Basin from the CRWUA 2023 Annual Report.

Here’s an excerpt from the report:

“Utah remains committed to ensuring the Colorado River remains a viable resource for the current and future generations who depend on its water. The river is a vital source of both municipal and agricultural water for Utah, supplying more than a quarter of all water used statewide.

“This commitment is underscored by the actions of Utah’s executive and legislative leadership, who have, in the last two years, allocated nearly a billion dollars for water conservation, development and infrastructure. The bills focus on agricultural water optimization, funding water reuse and desalination projects, installing secondary water meters, paying property owners to replace grass with water-efficient landscaping, monitoring groundwater, water education and more.”
