Drought Preparedness

The Colorado River is the lifeblood of the West, and it all begins in Grand County!  

But, we demand a lot of our river, from recreation, wildlife and agriculture, to our drinking water.  As the headwaters of the Colorado River, it is incumbent upon the Grand County community to be the leader in the conversation for how to become stewards of the river.

Below is a graph showing average temperature and precipitation from July - September. The star represents 2020 and as you can see it was very warm and dry compared to the average.
