House Bill (HB) 13-1248, as amended by Senate Bill (SB) 15-198, authorizes the Colorado Water Conservation Board (the “CWCB” or the “Board”) to administer a pilot program to test the efficacy of fallowing-leasing as an alternative to permanent agricultural dry-up. The pilot program may consist of the selection of up to ten separate pilot projects, each lasting up to ten years in duration, to test the practice of fallowing irrigated agricultural land and leasing the associated water rights for temporary municipal use.
