Gunnison Basin

Implementation Plan

Presentation to the

Colorado Water Conservation Board

July 16, 2014


The gbip in a nutshell approach
The GBIP in a Nutshell: Approach

  • Solid guidance from GBIP subcommittee

  • Minor restructuring to address local issues and flow

  • Targeted technical outreach

  • GBRT assistance with public outreach

  • Avoid duplication of previous efforts


The gbip in a nutshell content
The GBIP in a Nutshell: Content

  • Primary Goal: Protect Existing Uses

  • Focus on Agricultural Shortages

  • Agricultural Shortages = Agricultural Gap

  • Focus on Modeling

  • Tiered & Combined Project List

Section 4 projects to highlight
Section 4: Projects to Highlight

  • Tier 1: Implementation likely feasible by 2020; project does excellent job of meeting Basin Goals.

  • Tier 2: Implementation likely not feasible by 2020; project would excel at meeting Basin Goals. Project may also have important conditional water rights and/or completed planning efforts.

  • Tier 3: Implementation likely not feasible by 2020; project in preliminary stages of planning and/or may meet Basin Goals to lesser degree.


Section 4 planned project list
Section 4 – Planned Project List

  • Started withmost recent SWSI list – new & refined

  • Projects assessed for: water availability, feasibility, and competition for same water

  • Modeling analysis as requested

  • Large variability in project data

  • Significant effort in data collection

  • Proposed inventory projects

    • Inventory, assessment, and prioritization

    • Address infrastructure needs
