The Conservancy District was established in 1923 and is a political subdivision of the State of Colorado. The District developed a relocation plan for the Arkansas River and railroad lines and completed the original levee in 1926. After Hurricane Katrina, FEMA required all levees and dams to be recertified. It required the Pueblo Conservation District to replace the original levee in order to protect downtown Pueblo. The levee replacement was a multi-year process and is now in its sixth year. The current board has nine members appointed by the Pueblo City Council and Pueblo County Commissioners. The board meets the fourth Wednesday of each month. Corinne Koehler is the current president and Rick Kidd is the district administrator.
