The Upper Division States, acting through the Upper Colorado River Commission (UCRC), are extending the deadline for 2023 System Conservation Pilot Project (SCPP) applications to March 1, 2023. The extension will allow for additional outreach to Upper Division water users and Tribes, including new opportunities to address questions regarding the program and process. In addition, to more broadly capture innovative water conservation concepts and proposals from all water use sectors and Tribes, the States and the UCRC will consider applications received after March 1st on a case-by-case basis. Our goal continues to be to review and consider projects for 2023 as soon as possible. Projects may be contracted and implemented in calendar year 2023 on a rolling basis depending on the date the proposed project activity begins, and in adherence to the criteria established by the Upper Division States acting through the UCRC.
