Through collaborative efforts and unique approaches, The Water Connection drives innovative solutions addressing current and future water challenges. We bring together resources from education, government and the private sector for a multi-sector approach to projects and challenges.
• As the water resources arm of The Greenway Foundation, TWC is led an innovative and collaborative drive to maximize the Chatfield Environmental Pool. This project represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to provide additional flow in the South Platte River through Metro Denver. This project will serve as a model of collaborative water management practices that can be replicated in other water basins to meet our growing regional water challenges.
• TWC “pitched” the problem of urban waterway trash to innovators and entrepreneurs at the “Tap-In” event sponsored by the Colorado Water Conservation Board. The goal of the event was to facilitate solutions to complex environmental problems by connecting end users with start-up businesses and cutting edge practices and technologies. The result? TWC successfully connected with a start-up business owner and we are collaborating for a pilot project to test a new stormwater filtration device.
• TWC has developed partnerships allowing initiation of construction of a prototype instream-waterway trash removal device.
