From email from the Colorado Water Conservation Board (Ben Wade):

The State of Colorado’s DRAFT Drought Mitigation and Response Plan is now available on the CWCB website for public comment. The plan, as well as all associated appendices and documentation, can be down loaded at http://cwcb.state.co.us/. The public comment period for the Plan will be open from 30 days from July 22 through August 20, 2013.

The Drought Plan was revised as a part of the State’s Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan update in compliance with FEMA’s 3-year planning cycle. The revision process has resulted in a State Drought Plan that uses state of the art planning techniques to prepare Colorado for drought. The plan also includes an updated vulnerability assessment and a revised response framework.
