Most of this work is done by Division Offices located in the seven major river basins of the state.
These offices employ water commissioners to ensure the priority system is followed, enforcing the decrees and water laws of the State of Colorado.
The Colorado Ground Water Law of 1957 established the permitting requirement of ground water wells, and by 1969, surface and ground water rights were administered together.
Whether water is used simply to drink from your household tap or to irrigate hundreds of acres of cropland, everyone in Colorado benefits from the orderly distribution and management of the state’s most precious resource.
The family law representation we provide focuses on minimizing conflict to protect the emotional wellbeing and best interests of the children involved.
