DENVER, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Two Rivers Water Company (OTC QB: TURV), (http://www.2riverswater.com) announced today that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Town of Monument, Colorado, to jointly explore development of a Permanent Water Supply Plan. Two Rivers President Gary Barber said, "We are very pleased to embark on a collaborative relationship with the Town to identify viable renewable water supply strategies. We are committed to an integrated rotating farm fallowing model as the method for developing reliable municipal sources of supply."
Rotating farm fallowing keeps farmland in production while rotating the crops to generate an increment of water for use off the farm. The Arkansas Basin Roundtable, a multi-disciplinary body of representatives from throughout the region, has identified this alternative to permanent dry-up of farmland as the preferred method to address the looming municipal water supply gap along the Front Range of Colorado.
Two Rivers Water Company CEO John R. McKowen noted, "Our investment in irrigated farmland is based on the tremendous value Two Rivers sees in the future of food production in the United States. As global populations increase, the demand for safe, high-quality food for human consumption can only increase. Our vision is for a sustainable relationship between our farming operations and measures to meet the impending water shortage here in the Arid West. Our business model is predicated on working with municipalities like the Town of Monument from within the agricultural community."
