The Big Thompson Watershed Coalition (BTWC) formed as a 501(c)3 to help private and public landowners collaborate recovery efforts after the 2013 state-declared flooding emergency. Today, we continue to build a bright future in northern Colorado by working with dedicated partnerships in multiple sectors to reduce risks to the health and integrity of this river system and as well as the wild and human communities that depend on it.
This single network of waterways:
- Supplies 800,000 downstream water users across 32 communities;
- Provides the livelihoods and well-being of nearly 100,000 people in the watershed;
- Welcomes 4+ million annual visitors and their recreation-based economy;
- Supports residential, municipal, business, industrial, agricultural, and ecological water needs.
