DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 10, 2016) - Two Rivers Water and Farming Company (Two Rivers) (OTCQB: TURV) announced today the Company has completed a settlement agreement with the State of Colorado for the development of the Cucharas dam and reservoir.

Under the terms of the settlement, Two Rivers would temporarily lower the existing dam structure and build a new, more stable permanent dam. As part of the settlement discussions, Two Rivers discussed with the State the possibility of utilizing the Two Rivers' Huerfano Cucharas Irrigation Company's (HCIC) reservoir and canal system, including the Orlando reservoir and canal, to cooperate with other water users in the creation of a new basin wide augmentation plan. Two Rivers owns 95% of HCIC and 100% of the Orlando reservoir and canal.

John McKowen, CEO of Two Rivers, said, "The State and Division Engineers were very helpful in developing a common sense plan for rebuilding the Cucharas dam. The plan will insure the public's safety and increase the water efficiency inside the entire Huerfano River basin. The plan will enable us to restore the economic value of our HCIC assets and provide useful storage space for Huerfano and Pueblo County water administrators."
