The Gunnison Basin Roundtable  (GRBT) is just one of the nine basin roundtables established in 2005 by the Colorado Water for the 21st Century Act. The GRBT membership is comprised of a broad range of stakeholders. Accordingly, water management issues and local-level collaborative solutions are discussed by hundreds of diverse citizens.

The Gunnison Basin stretches over 8,000 square miles of western Colorado, extending from the Continental Divide to the confluence of the Gunnison and Colorado Rivers near Grand Junction.

The largest cities in the basin are Montrose (pop. 19,238), Delta (pop. 8,828) and Gunnison (pop. 6,403).

By 2050, the Gunnison Basin is projected to increase in municipal and industrial (M&I) water demand between 16,000 and 23,000 acre feet (AF) with passive conservation included.
