Platte Valley Water Partnership

Platte Valley Water Partnership LogoThe Platte Valley Water Partnership (PVWP) is an innovative, long-term water supply solution that will benefit both agricultural and municipal communities in the South Platte River Basin. After over a decade of working together, the PVWP was formally launched in 2021 between the Lower South Platte Water Conservancy District (LSPWCD) and Parker Water & Sanitation District (PWSD) to store available South Platte River water.

The partnership’s unique approach will provide both farms and cities with much-needed water. The project will use new and existing infrastructure to capture and store renewable South Platte River water flowing mostly in the spring and during storm events. This is water that currently leaves Colorado in quantities that exceed interstate compact agreements.
