Our mission is to promote, protect, and restore a healthy Blue River watershed through cooperative community education, stewardship, and resource management. We focus on the entire watershed, which drains an area of about 680 square miles covering all of Summit County and portions of Grand and Lake Counties. Read more about our organization here.

Integrated Water Management plan
BRWG is currently working closely with our partner, Trout Unlimited, to develop an Integrated Water Management Plan (IWMP) that will provide a roadmap for future water use, restoration projects, and other solutions to the issues that currently threaten the health of the watershed. This project is our primary focus and once it is completed the IWMP will guide the strategic direction of BRWG for the next several years. We need your input! What are your main concerns for the health of our watershed? Please complete our short survey to share your perspective.
