DENVER, May 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gary Barber of Two Rivers Water Company (OTCQB:TURV) ( www.2riverswater.com ) spoke with the "Colorado Agriculture News Network" this week. The President and Chief Operating Officer of the Colorado-based water and farming resources development firm discussed Two River's future in the Arkansas River basin along the Front Range of Colorado.

Mr. Barber spoke about Two Rivers' Rotational Farm Fallowing strategy which allows the transfer of water from farmland to municipalities in need of water, without drying up the farmland.

"There's a great deal of enthusiasm for keeping water on farms. Our [State's] history has been 'Buy and Dry' and that's not Two River's future if we want to retain the economic and aesthetic values of our landscape. Rotational Farm Fallowing is the only way Two Rivers will move water into the municipal system," said Barber. The system, Barber explained, rotates land usage for crops and splits water usage for municipalities.

Gary Barber has over 15 years of experience in managing and developing water assets in the western United States. He is the current Chairman of the Arkansas Basin Roundtable which was established by the Colorado Water for the 21st Century Act to facilitate discussions on water management issues and encourage locally driven collaborative solutions amongst the nine major river basins in Colorado. Mr. Barber served as Manager of the El Paso County Water Authority for the past ten years. Mr. Barber has formed and operated three water Special Districts in the State of Colorado. Mr. Barber is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy.

Two Rivers Water Company based in Denver, Colorado is focused on acquiring and developing water and irrigated farming assets in Colorado and the western U.S. The cornerstone of the company's strategy is to acquire accretive assets by re-aggregating water rights and re-applying them to formerly irrigated farmland in sufficient quantities to produce high yield exchange-traded grain crops or organic dairy feed (corn, wheat, and alfalfa).
