Lower Gunnison Project
Grant from the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)
Working to Improve Agricultural Water Use
Why the Lower Gunnison Project?
By modernizing irrigation water conveyance and delivery systems, agricultural water users will minimize losses, stretch water supplies and increase efficiencies. When combined with enhanced reservoir operations, the Lower Gunnison Project will increase agricultural production, enhance streamflows and increase water quality by reducing salinity and selenium concentrations, thus improving river habitat and soil health.
