Northern Water Events

Join Us For Fun and Learning

Conservation Gardens Fair 

2020 date TBD due to COVID-19 pandemic
Northern Water headquarters 

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.

Spring Water Users Meeting

Spring 2020 Meeting canceled due to COVID-19 pandemic

Each spring Northern Water meets with Colorado-Big Thompson (C-BT) Project allottees and water users to preview the upcoming water delivery and irrigation season. The meeting also enables staff to gather allottee input for the Board of Directors to consider as it considers and sets the annual C-BT Project quota. In addition, the meeting offers updates on our activities, projects, as well as guest presentations.

Fall Water Symposium

Each autumn Northern Water hosts a symposium to explore, in-depth, issues affecting Northeastern Colorado water users. Past symposium topics include the long-term future of the Colorado River and aging water infrastructure.
