The Colorado Water Trust Updated:09/2023

Our Mission, For Our State

The Colorado Water Trust is a private, non-profit organization that engages in and supports voluntary efforts to restore and protect streamflows in Colorado to sustain healthy aquatic ecosystems. These efforts include water acquisitions, other creative transfers of water, on-the-ground physical solutions, and providing technical assistance to land trusts.

How We Work

Colorado Water Trust was formed to restore and protect streamflows through water acquisitions, physical solutions, and other creative approaches. CWT is the only non-profit organization working statewide to transact water deals for conservation benefits. We work closely with the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB), the only entity in Colorado that can hold water rights for instream flow purposes.  Our projects are all voluntary and market-based.

We work with the agricultural community and other water users, governmental entities, land trusts, watershed groups, and others to address a statewide challenge: preserving Colorado’s way of life while restoring and protecting its watersheds.
