The Dolores River Restoration Partnership (DRRP) is a public-private collaborativeof partnering individuals, organizations, and agencies working to restore the riparian corridor of the Dolores River, which flows from the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado to eastern Utah, where it merges with the Colorado River.

The Eagle River Watershed Council owes its existence to the mining area around and below the present day ghost town of Gilman and because the Eagle River flows down the canyon just feet away from the mine site. Not surprisingly, the Eagle became contaminated with soluble heavy metals and the area was declared a Superfund site in 1985 which led to a massive clean-up effort.
