Take action: URGENT ALERT: Colorado's Rivers at Risk A critically important water bill—SB 23—is currently sitting on Governor Hickenlooper's desk. This bill creates a voluntary, common-sense solution for ranchers and farmers, allowing them to secure investments in much-needed infrastructure improvements, increase their efficiency, and take less water from Colorado's rivers. Rivers are an integral part of Colorado's unique heritage and culture. Rivers support wildlife, agriculture, and a multi-billion dollar tourism industry. They define Colorado itself. But Colorado's population is expected to double by 2050—putting even more stress on an already overused and over-exhausted water supply. Take Action: Urge Gov. Hickenlooper to sign SB23 into law immediately. Message * Subject: Dear [Decision Maker], * Personalize your message I urge you to sign Senate Bill 23, which helps protect our rivers, spurs investment in rural Colorado for voluntary modernization of irrigation practices, and creates much needed flexibility in our water system. This bill will allow ranchers and farmers to secure investments in much-needed irrigation infrastructure upgrades and to improve the health of our rivers and streams. As you know healthy rivers enhance our local economies and support our agricultural, recreation, and tourism industries. This legislation helps keep more water in our rivers while protecting agricultural water rights. As you have said before "every conversation about water should start with conservation", Senate Bill 23 offers a great opportunity to do just that. Diverse stakeholders ranging from conservationists, ranchers, water providers and citizens like me support Senate Bill 23. I hope that you'll join us in supporting this bill by signing it into law. Please support Senate Bill 23!
