It may surprise some that Colorado Parks and Wildlife is the largest holder of water rights in the Rocky Mountain state.  The state agency manages over 100 reservoirs for recreation and water.  Now the agency’s Water Unit has a new head.  Alex Davis returns to public service as the new head of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife water unit. Davis, one of Colorado’s leading water attorneys, began her new position on Thursday.

Davis has an extensive background in Colorado water and water law. She headed the InterBasin Compact Committee from 2009 to 2010. She also served as the Assistant Director for Water at the Colorado Department of Natural Resources for almost five years and as an Assistant Attorney General for Water in the Colorado Office of the Attorney General for several years.
