Who We Are
Northwest Colorado Council of Governments (NWCCOG) is a voluntary association of county and municipal governments in Region 12 established by Executive Order that benefits from working together on a regional basis. NWCCOG Water Quality/Quantity Committee (QQ) is the water policy arm of NWCCOG with a separate board, membership, and dues structure.
QQ facilitates and augments member jurisdictions’ efforts to protect and enhance the region’s water resources while encouraging its responsible use for the good of Colorado citizens and the environment. QQ is the only group of local governments in the state dedicated to water quality and quantity protection of Colorado’s headwaters.
- QQ updated its Model Code for Water Protection Standards in 2019, and in 2020 released its Water Savings Resource Guide and Model Provisions for the Colorado Headwaters. QQ members continue to lead the state in integrating water management and watershed protection into future development regulations.
- QQ commissioned a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative description of the importance of water to the QQ region. For more information, check out the report here.
