Ruedi Water and Power Authority

Mobilizing resources and influence to benefit the waters and communities of the Roaring Fork Valley

Since 1981, RWAPA has been the eyes, ears, and voice for the Roaring Fork watershed.

RWAPA is a regional council on water for the Roaring Fork watershed offering planning, coordination, and technical assistance to its members; administering programs and planning at a regional level; and acting as an intermediary between local government members and the state and federal government.  Our direction is provided by a Board comprised of an elected official from each of the jurisdictions within the watershed: Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, Pitkin and Eagle Counties.
