Colorado Water Rights And Conservation

If you’ve lived in the western United States, and especially the state of Colorado, you know that water rights, and water usage are huge issues for residents.

Often home buyers don’t understand, until we talk about it, that when you buy rural land in Colorado, you don’t always get the rights to the water which might flow on the property.

In fact, even in most areas, it’s typically not allowed to collect the rainwater from your roof’s runoff.

Until now…

Water’s always been a ‘hot-button’ issue, especially in rural Colorado. There have been issues with complex water rights, restriction on harvesting rainwater, etc.

With the passage of the State of Colorado Senate Bill 09-080, Colorado residents that can obtain a well permit, or residents that have a current well permit, can capture reinwater for ordinary household purposes, fire protection, watering poultry, domestic animals, and livestock on farms and ranches.

This is great news for rural Coloradans. For more information visit this website.
