DENVER, Oct. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two Rivers Water Company ("Two Rivers") (OTCBB:TURV) announced today it has acquired an additional 14% of the outstanding shares of the Huerfano-Cucharas Irrigation Company ("HCIC"). With this purchase, Two Rivers now owns 91% of HCIC.
"With this additional purchase, we continue to solidify our interest in HCIC. We believe that HCIC is the cornerstone to our efforts for the re-introduction of agriculture to land that was once extremely productive but has for the last several decades laid fallow," commented John McKowen, CEO of Two Rivers.
Two Rivers plans to rapidly expand its farming operations with the water, storage and distribution provided by HCIC along with the recently announced agreement to purchase the Orlando Reservoir and its associated water assets.
