Northern Water’s water quality program began in 1991 and has significantly expanded to include water quality monitoring, studies and coordinating with numerous federal, state and local organizations and stakeholders.
Northern Water monitors and evaluates Colorado-Big Thompson Project and Windy Gap Project water quality. Northern Water also works directly with its water users to address their water quality needs. Water quality monitoring, assessments and outreach efforts are critical to protecting the region’s water supplies.
