The Fish Creek Critical Community Watershed Wildfire Protection Plan

Please join Mt. Werner Water and the City of Steamboat Springs for a public overview of the Fish Creek Critical Community Watershed Wildfire Protection Plan (CWP2). This plan takes a comprehensive look at what we can do before, during and after a wildfire event to protect our critical drinking water supply.

The project team would like to connect with Steamboat residents and those who live, work, and play within the basin. Please plan on attending our Public Meeting from 6:00-7:00 PM on Thursday, June 13th at the Steamboat Springs Community Center, where we will present analysis results and solicit input from local land and water users, as we finalize the plan.

Water Conservation Master Plan

To prepare for changes to supply and demand, the City of Steamboat Springs and Mount Werner Water strive to implement strategies that promote water supply resiliency by preparing for growth, planning for drought and wildfire, planning for a Colorado River Compact Call, implementing water conservation, and developing a redundant supply. In 2019 the City and District completed an update to their Water Supply Master Plan (WSMP), which helps accomplish the items above by assessing the availability of current and future water supplies to meet future consumptive municipal demands under a series of growth and climate scenarios. This Water Conservation Plan update builds on the 2019 WSMP effort. This plan is an update to the City and District 2011 Water Conservation Plan and was developed in accordance with Colorado Statute and the Colorado Water Conservation Board’s (CWCB) guidelines.
