Water Resources Review Committee. The bill declares that new

technologies, such as blockchain, telemetry, improved sensors, and
advanced aerial observation platforms, can improve monitoring,
management, conservation, and trading of water and enhance confidence
in the reliability of data underlying water rights transactions. To advance
the potential use of these new technologies, the bill:
  • Authorizes and directs the university of Colorado, in
collaboration with the Colorado water institute at Colorado
state university, to conduct feasibility studies and pilot
deployments of these new technologies to improve water
management in Colorado; and
  • Appropriates $40,000 from the general fund, contingent on
the university of Colorado's receipt of a matching $40,000
in gifts, grants, and donations, for the purpose of funding
the studies and pilot programs.
