Defense of the Colorado River Compact Unit

The Defense of the Colorado River Compact Subunit is a part of the Federal and Interstate Water Unit, concentrating its efforts on the Colorado River. Attorneys in this unit represent Colorado's interests in the Colorado River Compact, the Upper Colorado River Compact and numerous other agreements between one or more states that may affect the State of Colorado's rights to fully use its allocations under the Colorado Compact and the Upper Basin Compact. This includes endangered species recovery plans, operational and water quality agreements and negotiations with Mexico. Attorneys in this unit are also involved in planning future policies and, if necessary, regulations to assure Colorado may fully use, but not exceed, its allocations from the compacts.
