/ Source: GlobeNewswire

DENVER, Sept. 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two Rivers Water Company ("Two Rivers") (OTCBB:TURV) announced today it has acquired 100% interest in HCIC Holdings, LLC ("HCIC"). HCIC was formed as a joint venture between Two Rivers Water Company and Two Rivers Basin, LLC ("TRB") for the purpose of acquiring and developing the Huerfano-Cucharas Irrigation Company and associated water assets in Huerfano and Pueblo Counties in Colorado. Previously Two Rivers and TRB each owned 50% of HCIC.

In exchange for purchasing 100% of the membership interest in HCIC held by TRB, Two Rivers issued 7,500,000 shares of its common stock to the members of TRB.

 "As a result of this purchase, Two Rivers is evaluating fair value accounting.   We are working with our engineers and hydrologist on an updated valuation of the business acquired," said Wayne Harding, Chief Financial Officer of Two Rivers. 

John McKowen, CEO of Two Rivers, stated, "This enables us to more effectively manage and develop the water, farming and energy opportunities available to Two Rivers. The purchase is accretive to our balance sheet and removes any potential conflicts of interest between Two Rivers and TRB.  It gives the shareholders of Two Rivers 100% of the benefit of Two Rivers' management and capital."

Mr. McKowen went on to say, "Unlike many speculative and infrastructure dependent business models designed to try and take advantage of the arbitrage between agricultural and municipal water prices in Colorado, Two Rivers has developed a business model whereby it has all the necessary components to currently capture revenue streams from storing and delivering water, growing crops and producing energy through micro hydro electrical generators."
