About Us

CCWCD Building

The Central Colorado Water Conservancy District was formed to develop, manage and protect water resources in northeast Colorado.

Our mission is: “To develop, promote, and implement water
conservation, augmentation, and management
strategies to protect water resources for the benefit
of the citizens of the District and its Subdistricts.”

We currently provide water augmentation and decree administration for over 1100 irrigation wells within our district. District boundaries cover land from Brighton north to Greeley, and east to Fort Morgan, encompassing parts of three different counties. Irrigation allotment contract holders pay an annual assessment for the services provided by the two well Subdistricts; the Groundwater Management Subdistrict created in 1973, and the Well Augmentation Subdistrict created in 2004. The main District and two Subdistricts own an extensive portfolio of water rights, including ditch, river and reservoir shares. We administer dozens of water management sites, covering reservoirs to recharge ponds. Two of the larger and more well-known storage lakes include JoDee Reservoir in Windsor and Siebring Reservoir in Greeley.

Constituents owning property within the main District boundaries pay a mill levy assessment. Services provided to these taxpayers include an extensive water quality testing program, leading edge water education outreach and active legislative efforts to protect water sources and water rights.

The home office is located in Greeley at 3209 W. 28 Street, though field staff can be found anywhere from Wiggins to Denver. Central has a court appointed Board of Directors, currently at 15 members. Board of Director meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month and are open to the public. A complete list of board and staff members is included on this website.

Office hours are Monday - Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. The office is closed for lunch from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm daily. Closings for holidays may be found on the website calendar.
