Colorado can’t live without water.

Our food, economy, culture—and our very survival—depend on abundant, clean and accessible water.

In 2002, amid the worst single-year drought on record in state history, the Colorado Legislature founded Water Education Colorado (formerly Colorado Foundation for Water Education). Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit is charged with the important task of ensuring a sustainable water future for our state by educating and engaging Colorado citizens around this limited resource.

Like Colorado’s water pioneers, who first came together to solve massive water infrastructure challenges, Water Education Colorado and its members are committed to advancing solutions in the same spirit of yesteryear—that of courage, leadership, innovation and collaboration. Our world of water is more complex and threatened than ever before, but with understanding and tools that are light years ahead, we are working to ensure a better water future for all.
