RWAPA was a co-sponsor, along with the Colorado Water Conservation Board, of the Roaring Fork and Fryingpan Multi-Objective Study (1999). This Study provided a comprehensive survey of river stability issues and solutions between Aspen and Glenwood Springs and spurred further planning for specific areas. RWAPA coordinated local input into the 208 Water Quality Plan update in partnership with the North West Colorado Council of Governments. RWAPA has carried out evaluations of hydropower potential for locations in Aspen, Glenwood Springs & Carbondale. RWAPA has carried out research for Pitkin County in the areas of minimum streamflow and water diversion.
