Colorado Water Trust (CWT)

Presentation of the Organization

The CWT 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.

The CWT is the only non-profit organization working statewide to transact water deals for conservation benefits. It works 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.
