Water Resources Review Committee. The bill creates the
groundwater compact compliance and sustainability fund to help finance
groundwater use reduction efforts in the Rio Grande river basin and the
Republican river basin, such as efforts to buy and retire irrigation wells
and irrigated acreage in the river basins. The Colorado water conservation
board administers the fund and can make expenditures from the fund

based on recommendations from the board of directors of the Rio Grande
water conservation district or the Republican river water conservation
district. A conservation district's recommendations must first be approved
by the state engineer.
