RWAPA Mobilizes Resources and Influence to Benefit the Waters and Communities of the Roaring Fork Valley

About Us

Since 1981, RWAPA has been speaking on behalf of our residents, and persistently advocating for advancements in economic, environmental, and recreational interests. Our partners across the region assist us in studying local water resources. We meet on a quarterly basis at various locations, funded by member contributions. A part-time director who carries out Board policies and fulfills project demands leads the staff. Members include Aspen, Carbondale, Basalt, Glenwood Springs, Snowmass Village, Pitkin County, and Eagle County. RWAPA Board members are elected officials from each of the member governments.
