 Purpose of the District
Minimize

The Republican River Water Conservation District was authorized by the General Assembly of the State of Colorado under Senate Bill 04-235 for the purpose of cooperating with and assisting the State to carry out its duty to comply with the limitations and duties imposed upon the State by the Republican River Compact.

 Water Activity Enterprise
Minimize

On October 12, 2004, the Board of Directors created the Republican River Water Conservation District Water Activity Enterprise. This water activity enterprise was created to provide a service to the water users throughout the District by minimizing the potential of well curtailment due to noncompliance of the Republican River Compact between Colorado/Kansas/Nebraska.

As allowed by statute, the Enterprise collects water use fees annually to fund normal operating activities and to purchase and lease water rights that help the State of Colorado in its efforts to get into compact compliance. The Board of Directors of the Republican River Water Conservation District is the governing body for the enterprise. The enterprise is excluded from the provisions of, and cannot levy a tax which is subject to, Section 20 of Article X of the State constitution (Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights).
