Who We Are
Two Rivers Water & Farming Company (OTC: TURV) acquires, manages and develops the infrastructure of various agricultural industries, including land and water rights.
We create a positive social impact on our community through centering on sustainable economic development of infrastructure for land and water delivery in our rural community and investing in agriculture and infrastructure assets.
What We Do
Since 2009, we have acquired strategic water & land assets, including water storage vessels, direct flow rights, and associated land, in the Huerfano and Cucharas River basins in southeastern Colorado, thus the name Two Rivers.
Our long-term focus includes capturing valuable water resources needed for farmland irrigation and community development, expanding land holdings, creating strategic partnerships for rural development, exploring renewal energy opportunities and developing the necessary infrastructure to support growth.
Our business strategy helps create local jobs, allows for the progression of a residential community and restores farmland that has gone fallow for lack of reliable water supply.
Our land holding stretch over 3 counties and include over 6,000 acres, including 1158 irrigated farmland.
Parcels of our irrigated land have proven to be suitable for a variety of crops including: Sorghum, Triticale, Hay Grazer, Barley, Oats, Alfalfa, German Millet, Sudan Grass, Hay, and Hemp.
Our water rights are primarily located on the Huerfano and Cucharas river basins in Southern Colorado.
Our water asset area spans over 1,900 square miles and drops in elevation from over 14,000 feet down to the confluence of the Arkansas River, just east of Pueblo, Colorado at 4,500 feet.

Colorado’s Water & Irrigated Agricultural Land is at Risk
Colorado’s Water Plan sets a measurable objective of attaining 400,000 acre-feet of water storage in order to manage and share conserved water and the yield of IPPS by 2050. This objective equates to an 80% success rate for these planned projects.
Colorado’s Water Plan
Water is essential to Colorado’s quality of life and economy and yet, they face a future with a significant gap between demand and supply.
Within the next few decades, even assuming aggressive conservation and the completion of dozens of water projects currently being considered, Colorado will face a shortfall that could exceed 500,000 acre feet.
The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) delivered Colorado’s Water Plan in November 2015 as a result of Governor Hickenlooper’s May 2013 executive order. The Plan is a comprehensive set of programs and projects that will help conserve and protect the state’s rivers and streams while beginning to address the gap between the demand for water and the water that is available.
A Productive Economy
… that supports vibrant and sustainable cities, agriculture, recreation and tourism.
… and effective water infrastructure.
A Strong Environment
… with healthy watersheds, rivers, streams and wildlife.
Irrigated Agricultural Land is at Risk
Agriculture is vital to Colorado’s economy and local communities. Colorado’s Water Plan sets a measurable objective that agricultural economic productivity will keep pace with growing state, national and global needs.
Without a water plan, Colorado could lose up to 700,000 more acres of irrigated agricultural land- that equals 20 percent of irrigated agricultural lands statewide by 2050.
Colorado’s Water Plan sets a measurable objective of reducing the projected 2050 municipal and industrial gap from as much as 560,000 acre-feet to zero by 2030.
Every acre-foot of conserved water used to meet new demands os an acre-foot of water that does not need to come from other existing uses.
Diverse Plan Objectives Keep Colorado Strong
Reduce the projected 2050 municipal and industrial gap from 560,000 acre-feet to zero by 2030.
Attain 400,000 acre-feet of water storage to manage and share conserved water by 2050.
Support agricultural economic productivity and share 50,000 acre-feet using alternative transfer methods by 2030.
Achieve 400,000 acre-feet of municipal and industrial conservation of water by 2050.
Sustainably fund the water plan by raising $100 million in revenue annually starting in 2020 ($3 billion by 2050).
Ensure 75 percent of Coloradans live in water-saving communities by 2050.
Improve the level of public awareness by 2020, and engage Coloradans on key water challenges by 2030.
Cover 80 percent of all prioritized watersheds and rivers with management plan by 2030.
Respond to and prepare for natural disasters, climate change, and energy needs while protecting interstate matters.
