Upper Arkansas Water Conservancy District (UAWCD) was founded in 1979. Its mission is to acquire and preserve for present and future use all water rights available in the Upper Arkansas Valley, for use within the Valley, whether municipal, agricultural, industrial or domestic, and to seek every possible means to increase the water supply available within the District. A major portion of water used by the UAWCD comes from the Fryingpan-Arkansas Project water that UAWCD stores in Twin Lakes, Pueblo, and Turquoise Reservoirs.
