No two rivers are the same – they may course through steep canyons or gently meander through the plains. Some rivers support sprawling orchards and livestock operations while others supply water to Colorado’s growing cities. But all rivers support natural habitat for fish and other wildlife.

The Colorado Water Trust works directly with water rights owners in a neutral and collaborative manner to find creative and effective flow restoration solutions that take into account the particular needs of the river and the water users.
Since 2010, the Colorado Water Trust’s projects have restored over seven billion gallons (nearly 22,000 acre-ft) of water to over 375 miles of rivers and streams in the State of Colorado. The Water Trust’s flow restoration successes are a result of focused strategic planning and a strong network of partners and supporters.
