Colorado Water Conservation Board

In 2008, the Colorado Water Conservation Board released a report, "Colorado Climate Change: A Synthesis to Support Water Resource Management and Adaptation,” which has useful information on climate change in Colorado, in general, about its effects on water supplies, in particular. This report, prepared by the Western Water Assessment at the University of Colorado, is so far the only state government report that presents this kind of general information on climate change and its effects in the state.
