Water and Colorado

Water is and has always been an important issue worldwide and in the real estate industry.

Our human behaviors haven’t always been in the water conditions best interests, and that’s why it is very important even more so today to be conscious of our habits and there after effects.

The Water Education Colorado is the leading organization for informing and engaging Coloradans on water issues. Our statewide community is connected by a deep appreciation for water and a love for the natural resources that make our state so exceptional.

Working toward a vibrant, sustainable and water-aware Colorado, we collaborate independently with all stakeholders. Water Education Colorado provides community membership, leadership training, educational resources and programming to ensure Coloradans are both knowledgeable about key water issues and equipped to make smart decisions for a sustainable water future.

As a nonprofit created by the state Legislature, Water Education Colorado is committed to educating and engaging citizens and professionals around our most precious and increasingly limited resource. To do that, a key focus of the WEco mission is building, developing and evolving programming that serves the diverse needs and interests of people in Colorado.

Whether you are already working in a state water-related or conservation industry or are a new resident simply interested in how this scarce resource will impact your everyday life, WEco provides an exceptional lineup of programs to help you explore the history, current issues and future impact of water in our state.

Water Rights Uses and Sand and Gravel

Real estate activity in this area has become a significant part of our business at Phill Foster and Company. Water in Colorado has always been a valuable commodity, and the exponential growth of fracking in the Niobrara has had a tremendous impact on water use, availability, and value.  Our brokers are familiar with most Water Districts, and with the Ditch and Reservoir Companies in Northern Colorado. In addition, we have been involved in a number of transactions involving the sale, purchase, lease and development of both tributary and non-tributary water rights, as well as sand and gravel excavation and water storage for both municipalities and private parties.  Pete Gunderson, Larry Cornell, and Gail Kats can be extremely helpful in this area. Pete is a member of the Colorado Foundation for Water Education. Their individual and combined expertise serves clients well.

Lead with confidence

The WEco Water Fluency program is a professional development course for non-water professionals. Water is critical for every aspect of community vibrancy — from industry and commerce to agriculture, tourism, health and environment. But it isn’t always clear how water policy and management decisions trickle down to other sectors.

Water Fluency is a comprehensive program designed to help non-water professionals, such as elected officials, city/county staff, community and business leaders, special districts staff, board members for water organizations, and anyone who is interested in gaining water fluency, make those connections. Developing tools for navigating water management and policy issues, Water Fluency graduates take the language of water into their fields to lead with new confidence.

What participants are saying:

“Whether you need to learn about water rights, production processes or stream health, or looking to become better acquainted with the myriad water organizations throughout the state of Colorado, the Water Fluency class is the place to start.”

– Michelle Metteer, Town Manager of Minturn, Colorado, 2017 program graduate

The Water Fluency format

Water Fluency is made up of four in-person classroom days; water-focused site visits; online discussions; and homework between classroom days. Class size is limited to 35 participants, who represent a range of sectors and perspectives.

Curriculum covers statewide water topics blended with local issues, so people from all over Colorado will benefit from the content. WEco partners Colorado State University for the online portion of the program, giving Water Fluency participants access to the same lectures, discussions and quizzes as degree-seeking students.

Our statewide community is connected by a deep appreciation for water and a love for our state. Get involved today and help us work toward a vibrant, sustainable and water-aware Colorado!
