Transformative WaterPitkin County, Colorado, U.S.A
- The 40-acre Colorado ranch sits at an elevation of 7,200 feet and occupies a flat glacial terrace above the Roaring Fork River.
- During the 1980s, the ranch was converted into an asphalt production plant for work on an adjacent highway.
- Purchased by the current owners in the mid-1990s, the restored ranch compound is now a model of sustainable planning and environmental stewardship.
- Law requires that the land function as a holding facility for water used by the nearby village. New man-made wetlands and pond aeration systems increase the water quality.
