State money is flowing into three local water providers.
The City of Grand Junction, Ute Water and the Clifton Water District were just awarded a $50,000 grant to create a water conservation plan.
Officials say the plan is required by state law but it also gives them the opportunity to find new ways to save one of our most precious resources as the Grand Valley continues to grow.
Officials say the plan will take about a year to develop. It must then be approved by the Colorado Water Conservation Board before it can take effect.
