Protecting the Valley
On-Site Environmental Commitments
The Chimney Hollow Reservoir Project is located within a relatively pristine valley that has geologic wonders, sensitive vegetation communities, special status species and numerous cultural resources. Responsibly constructing, operating and maintaining a large reservoir in this setting requires a robust environmental stewardship effort.
The Northern Water Municipal Subdistrict has and will continue to collaborate with environmental stakeholders and regulatory agencies, including but not limited to Larimer County, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the State Historic Preservation Office and Tribal Nations to protect, conserve and enhance the Chimney Hollow valley for current and future generations.
