Webinar: Policy Questions Around Water Sharing

Photo by Allen Best

Flexible water sharing agreements or alternative transfer methods (ATMs) could help keep water in agriculture while supplies are shared with municipalities or others to meet the many water needs of the state's population. Colorado's Water Plan calls for 50,000 acre-feet of water to be identified in ATMs by 2030.

How can Colorado reach its goal and scale up the adoption of alternative transfer methods? On Jan. 11, 2018, Water Education Colorado was joined by Colorado's State Engineer, Kevin Rein; Jim Yahn with the North Sterling Irrigation District; and Peter Nichols with Berg, Hill, Greenleaf and Ruscitti LLP to explore the conversations around existing policy and policy changes that might increase the adoption of ATMs.
