Don’t let the Colorado River go down the drain. Let’s protect the Colorado way of life we love for future generations. Outdoor activities like fishing, rafting and camping depend on healthy rivers. Soon, 80% of the Upper Colorado could be diverted to supply Front Range communities, leaving only a trickle behind. Add your voice by signing our online petition asking Denver Water to protect the Fraser River, a major tributary of the upper Colorado. There is an option for including your comments. Sign Now »
Defend the Colorado
Send a Message to Denver Water – Don’t Suck the Fraser River Dry!
Follow our homeless trout's adventures as he leaves his river home and hits Denver's mean streets in search of water. This trout will swim for water! Then sign the petition.
“The headwaters of the Colorado and Fraser Rivers are a vital Colorado resource. People move to Colorado for the beauty of the NATURAL outdoors, not Kentucky bluegrass lawns. Diverting the flows in these rivers to water lawns along Front Range communities will have a devastating effect on our quality of life. Please be heard on this important issue for the future of our state.”
