Formed in 1966 to plan and construct water conservation projects including Yamcolo (1980) and Stagecoach (1989) Reservoirs in order to capture snowmelt and release it into the Yampa River to supplement low flow during dry periods. Since then, the District has furnished water supply for agricultural irrigation, municipalities, industries, recreation and the environment, at the same time generating carbon neutral hydropower. In addition, the District acts as the guardian of critical water rights in the Yampa Valley. The District is governed by a board of nine directors and collects revenue from water contracts, electrical power generation, and tax levy. The district boundaries includes most of Routt County and a portion of Moffat County.
Upper Yampa Water Conservancy District has numerous grant opportunities. Please contact us for additional information.
