The PSA contemplates the parties working with the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) to protect the historic flow regime by adding an alternate use of instream flow in the 2.4 mile reach of the Colorado between the current diversion and the plant discharge to the existing non-consumptive rights.

The Coalition views the State of Colorado as an integral partner in this effort and looks forward to negotiating an Instream Flow Agreement between PSCo, the River District, and the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) before final sale under the PSA in order to protect the historic call regime in perpetuity.
