The Water Quality and Quantity Committee (QQ) comprises municipalities, counties, water and sanitation districts, and conservancy districts in the headwaters region of Colorado located in Grand, Summit, Eagle, Pitkin, Park and Gunnison counties. The Colorado River Water Conservation District is also a QQ member. The Board is made up of elected and appointed officials from member jurisdictions. Click here to view the current QQ member list.
QQ’s purpose is to facilitate and augment the efforts of member jurisdictions to protect and enhance the region’s water quality while encouraging its responsible use for the good of Colorado citizens and the environment.
QQ monitors water development activities and participates in legislative and administrative proceedings that affect water quality or quantity in the basin of origin. QQ Committee meetings operate as a forum for policy formulation and strategic decision-making by QQ Committee members.
QQ staff provides members with legislative monitoring, water quality information, litigation and rulemaking support, trans-mountain diversion oversight, and related technical assistance to further intergovernmental cooperation, and increase political clout with state and federal agencies.
