Colorado River Headwaters Project Receives Big Grant


This week the headwaters of the Colorado River received some help from the federal government which is tossing nearly $8 million into the Colorado River to improve water quality, soil conditions and habitat loss from the Front Range and Eastern Plains sucking up the Western Slope’s water. The Colorado River was one of 88 projects set to collectively receive $225 million in federal dollars matched by local partners kicking in $500 million to “improve the nation’s water quality, combat drought, enhance soil health, support wildlife habitat and protect agricultural viability.”
