The Purgatoire Watershed Partnership (PWP) is a stakeholder watershed group that functions out of Trinidad, Colorado. PWP was started by local citizens who were compelled to collaboratively find solutions to ongoing concerns in the Purgatoire River Watershed.


PWP works on a variety of watershed health projects. Recent projects include community wildfire protection plans (CWPP's), invasive species management, and drinking water quality. Click below to learn exactly what's been happening in your watershed.
