Can My Water Help?

Are you a water user wondering if your water rights could help your local streams and rivers? We might be able to help.

The Colorado Water Trust team works with willing water users to improve streamflows in water-short streams. We work within the framework of Colorado water law, and all of our projects are voluntary and market-based. Read more about the tools we use here.

We do the legwork so you don’t have to. What does that mean? We do technical analyses, title work, due diligence, coordination with regulatory agencies, and other transactional processes to determine if your water right is appropriate for the Instream Flow Program through the Colorado Water Conservation Board. Our hope is to keep transaction costs to you as low as possible.

We know that talking about your water rights can be a sensitive matter. That’s why we keep all preliminary conversations confidential.  We will keep you informed throughout our process about when we need to be able to openly describe any transaction or project we might develop together. Water projects are often public, so some release of information eventually may be required. But we will never release your information without your permission.

If we aren’t able to help you, we will make our best effort to find other resources to help you out.

If you are interested in learning more about how we might work together to keep your water in your local community, please Contact Us and someone will contact you as soon as possible.
