Colorado Water Trust
The Colorado Water Trust is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring and protecting streamflows in Colorado through voluntary, market-based efforts. These efforts include permanent water acquisitions, water leases, physical solutions, technical assistance and support, and other creative solutions that improve streamflows.
In other words, Colorado is a dry state with a limited water supply. The Colorado Water Trust leases or purchases water rights, in accordance with Colorado water law, to move water back into streams for environmental benefits. We also pursue any other creative solution that will bolster streamflows in Colorado.
