The Purgatoire Watershed Partnership is a stakeholder watershed group that functions out of Trinidad, Colorado. The group was started by local citizens who were compelled to address and rectify ongoing concerns in the Purgatoire River Watershed. The group is comprised of stakeholders with diverse interests who have come together to form a cooperative partnership to work towards the conservation, protection and enhancement of their watershed’s health. As the group continues to grow it is important that no local stakeholders are excluded, and that as many of the voices in the watershed are heard as possible.

In September 2012 the group received a Bureau of Reclamation Cooperative Watershed Management Grant. This grant was highly competitive and offered to 17 states located in the western U.S. The funding awarded has allowed them to hire a watershed coordinator and, prospectively, a watershed consultant to carry out the group’s objectives and goals. With a newly constructed mission statement and adopted bylaws, the coordinator will work to determine watershed management project concepts, and ultimately working to develop and implement a watershed restoration plan. The coordinator will also work to increase stakeholder involvement in the group, so that the many voices of the watershed can be heard and the watershed can be benefited.
