Colorado Lake and Reservoir Management Association (CLRMA) is a non-profit organization of water management professionals, citizens and lake monitoring volunteers dedicated to preserving and protecting Colorado lakes and reservoirs. Our organization is comprised of people from State, Federal and municipal entities, watershed organizations, as well as citizens who share an interest in the vital resources that Colorado lakes and reservoirs provide. Thousands of people each year enjoy being on or around Colorado's lakes and reservoirs. Water in Colorado works hard to provide habitat for wildlife adjacent to the waters edge, swimming, fishing, boating, bird watching, and even serving as a drinking water source for towns and cities and irrigation water for farms and ranches throughout our state. Colorado's water is a precious resource that must be preserved and protected for the future. Join CLRMA and support this mission!
