Public Opinion Surveys: Strong NISP Support
Two public opinion surveys – taken five years apart – show continuing strong support for NISP:

Water Quality Studies Summarized
These documents summarize the Northern Integrated Supply Project studies conducted by Black & Veatch Corporation following questions raised by the City of Fort Collins and others in 2008 during the Draft Environmental Impact Statement comment period. These studies address issues associated with water quality in Horsetooth Reservoir and the Poudre River as well as at a defunct missile site north of the river. 

Ag Water Quality and NISP
Maintaining water quality is an important component of the Northern Integrated Supply Project. To that end, the 15 NISP participants have utilized one of the nation’s foremost experts on agricultural water quality issues – Dr. Glenn Hoffman – to analyze water samples collected in the New Cache and Larimer and Weld canals and at the Kersey Gage on the South Platte River to predict future salinity levels after the implementation of NISP.

Dr. Hoffman found NISP will not impact farmer’s ability to grow crops and will not reduce yields. 

The Agricultural Water Quality Brochure describes general water quality information and defines commonly used water quality terminology. For further information please contact Amy Johnson at 970-292-2524 or
