Spring Water Symposium

Northeastern Colorado water users heard from multiple speakers about the current snowpack and water storage conditions, anticipated runoff predictions, challenges facing the Colorado River Basin and ways we can do our part through water conservation. After a discussion of the region’s water outlook, attendees were encouraged to provide input on Northern Water’s pending 2023 Colorado-Big Thompson Project supplemental quota declaration. Attendees also heard about the latest activities being carried out by Northern Water, such as the ongoing construction of Chimney Hollow Reservoir and next steps for the Northern Integrated Supply Project.

Guests attending the Conservation Gardens Fair

Conservation Gardens Fair 

No event planned for 2023 

Started in 2011, the annual Conservation Gardens Fair allows the public to tour Northern Water’s award-winning gardens while simultaneously attending a free family-friendly event. Our Berthoud campus includes a 2.5-acre conservation garden where staff conducts plant, turf and irrigation studies, as well as educates the public about best practices for water efficient landscaping. This annual event includes how-to seminars, irrigation demonstrations, expert landscaping advice and fun activities designed just for kids. The gardens feature more than 700 Colorado-friendly perennials, turf and shrubs that provide beautiful, striking and climate-appropriate landscaping ideas for your home or business.  

As our Conservation Gardens and Water Efficiency program have gained visibility, this event grows in popularity every year. Not only can the public connect with industry professionals for information and advice, but our partners find this event quite valuable for sharing their program details.
