The Peaks to People Water Fund is committed to conservation that achieves measurable outcomes and is based on strong science. To that end, we have begun work at several demonstration sites to assist with initial data gathering, testing and process development. All operating and certification procedures used to measure ecological benefits and returns on investments are being documented and compiled into our Watershed Optimization Tool, which will be used to understand outcomes and inform future projects.
The following demonstration sites are currently in operation. Each site is located in either the Big Thompson or Cache la Poudre watersheds and is unique in design and function.
