Two Rivers Operations To Emphasize Irrigated Farming

Accepts Resignation of President and COO

DENVER, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Two Rivers Water Company (OTC QB: TURV) (http://www.2riverswater.com) announced today it intends to emphasize irrigated farming as the near term path to profitability.  On November 2, 2012, Two Rivers, as a result of the excellent performance of Dionisio Farms & Produce in the very difficult 2012 growing season, completed its acquisition of the assets of Dionisio Farms & Produce, LLC.  The Company also entered into a long-term employment agreement with Russ Dionisio making him President and Chief Operating Officer of Dionisio Farms & Produce, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Two Rivers, and responsible for all of Two Rivers' farm and produce operations.

John McKowen, Two River's CEO and Founder stated, "Two Rivers has developed a significant water portfolio which gives the Company a protected development position moving forward.  Water development will continue to be a very important part of Two Rivers' synergistic business model.  However, with the excellent results of our 2012 Dionisio Farm & Produce operations, the Company needs to focus on expanding our farm revenues and profit margins."

Apparently as a result of the emphasis on farming and perceived diminution in responsibility, Gary Barber, the Company's President and Chief Operating Officer, whose primary work experience and expertise lie in municipal water operations, without notice and unexpectedly notified the Company on November 5, 2012 via email of his resignation.  The Company, while regretting the loss of Gary's water expertise, understands his decision and has accepted his resignation.
