Compact Accounting

This page features descriptions and links to RRCA Compact Accounting and Groundwater Modeling documents.

What is the Republican River Compact Accounting?  In order to determine compact compliance for each state, every year on April 15th the three States exchange required data about supply and use of basin water in each state.  Then, over the next several months the States review the data and reach agreement on the accounting.  Finally, at the annual meeting of the Compact Administration, the three Commissioners vote to approve that year’s accounting.

RRCA approved annual accounting

RRCA Accounting Procedures & Reporting Requirements (August 21, 2020).  The Accounting Procedures and Reporting Requirements were created as part of the FSS in 2002 as Appendix C.  The Procedures are updated by the RRCA when accounting changes are agreed upon by the three states.  Past updated Accounting Procedures include the 2017, 2016 and 2015 versions.
