Announcing…myRiver Balance!

We are thrilled to announce a new way for you to support Colorado’s rivers!


Colorado’s population, particularly on the Front Range, has grown significantly over the years creating a serious water challenge for our state.

Colorado Water Trust has been working since 2001 to balance Colorado’s water equation, retuning water to Colorado’s rivers and streams. Now, there is a way for you to do your part by returning the amount of water you use each year to Colorado’s rivers and streams through myRiver Balance!

myRiver Balance is a way for people to give back to their rivers by helping Colorado Water Trust purchase or lease water for environmental flows. It is not a water offset program but rather a mechanism for Front Range residents (and others) to support rivers and streams on the Western Slope based on their annual water use.

Participants make a contribution through myRiver Balance based on the amount of water they use each year. Those contributions allow Colorado Water Trust to purchase or lease approximately the same amount of water for environmental flows in that same year whenever possible.

Help balance Colorado’s water equation with a contribution to myRiver Balance today!
