Description:
Upper Yampa Water Conservancy District Mission
To lead water resource management within the District’s boundaries by responsibly conserving, protecting, developing, providing, and enhancing the water resources of the Upper Yampa River Basin, for the benefit of the Basin.
District Background
The Upper Yampa Water Conservancy District was formed in 1966 and instituted a mill levy under the Water Conservancy Act of the State of Colorado, in order to plan and develop water conservation projects in the Upper Yampa Basin. The District encompasses Routt County and a portion of Moffatt County and is divided into three divisions: Division 1 (Hayden area), Division 2 (Steamboat Springs area), and Division 3 (Oak Creek/Yampa area). The nine members of the Board of Directors, three representing each Division, are appointed by the District Judge to serve staggered four-year terms.

The District was formed on the basis that properties within the District would benefit through conservation, development, and stabilization of water supplies for domestic irrigation, power, manufacturing, and other beneficial uses. This led to the construction of Yamcolo Reservoir, located in the Flattops near the headwaters of the Yampa River, in 1980 and Stagecoach Reservoir, located southeast of Steamboat, in 1989.
Yamcolo offers 9,621 acre feet of storage, which primarily provides water to agricultural operations in South Routt County; some of which is delivered via the Stillwater Ditch, a District-owned and operated irrigation ditch that crosses the Five Pines Mesa. With up to 36,439 acre feet of storage, Stagecoach serves a multitude of water users, including municipalities, industrial use such as energy production, agricultural operations, and recreation including snowmaking. The District also owns and operates an 800 kW hydroelectric power plant at Stagecoach Dam.
In addition to safely maintaining and operating District-owned facilities, the District promotes healthy reservoirs, streams, and watersheds within the District. In 2012, the District partnered with the Colorado Water Trust to coordinate the first environmental water release out of Stagecoach Reservoir. As part of its maintenance and operation, the District also closely adjusts and monitors the temperature and oxygen content of its releases to ensure a healthy habitat for trout and other aquatic life downstream, a contribution to both the environment and recreational opportunities on the Yampa River.
In collaboration with various agencies, the District supports water quality efforts and participates in working groups to address issues that may affect water quantity in the future. The District monitors issues throughout the Colorado River Basin in an effort to protect the water resources of the Upper Yampa Basin and plan for potential water shortages.
The District is committed to an Upper Yampa River Basin with safe, secure water storage and supply that benefits all uses in the Basin.
The Board of the Upper Yampa Water Conservancy District now seeks a new General Manager to manage operations and to implement our robust strategic plan.

General Manager Position
Under direction of the District Board of Directors, the General Manager (GM) manages the overall activities of the District. The GM recommends and participates in the formation and revision of policies and programs by the Board and is responsible for implementing and directing through effective leadership, the District’s mission, vision and strategic plan.

The General Manager reviews the status of the strategic plan’s implementation annually and ensures that strategic priorities for the coming year are accurately reflected in the annual budget. The General Manager updates the Board regularly on the status of the plan and works in partnership with the Board ot make any needed adjustments to timelines or priorities.

The GM supervises day to day activities of the District, including water delivery and operation of two reservoirs and a hydroelectric facility. This includes managing an annual operating budget of $2 million and a staff of six dedicated professionals. The General Manager builds and maintains a culture that fosters staff development, collaboration, accountability, and customer service.

The GM represents the District on water policy matters and is directly involved in water rights issues and other legal matters. The GM engages in long-term financial planning to ensure the effective alignment with the District’s vision and its budget. The GM partners with the board in identifying long-term sources of revenue.

The GM works with representatives from the Basin Round Table, Colorado Water Conservation Board, stream management planning efforts and other advocacy groups. The GM coordinates and collaborates on projects, legislative activities and Colorado River water policies.
