Report Highlights How Climate Change May Affect Water Supply and Demand in Colorado

As Colorado’s climate continues to warm, those who manage or use water in the state will likely face significant changes in water supply and demand, according to a new report on state climate change released by the Western Water Assessment and the Colorado Water Conservation Board.  The “Climate Change in Colorado” report is a synthesis of climate science relevant for management and planning for Colorado’s water resources.  The report examines observed climate trends, climate modeling, temperature projections, precipitation, snowpack, and streamflow.  Authors sought to provide information that would be useful to those involved in making long-term decisions about Colorado’s water in the face of climate change.
