Touring Our Facilities

Northern Water offers several opportunities to learn about our projects and facilities through in-person and virtual tours.

Conservation Gardens Tours

The Conservation Gardens and adjacent Colorado-Big Thompson Project Interpretive Area offer self-guided tours during daylight hours year-round. The gardens demonstrate water-efficient landscaping options for homeowners, commercial property owners and homeowners associations. The interpretive area is a small-scale replica of key C-BT Project features in a contemplative setting. 

The Conservation Gardens may also be toured via computer with a story map to guide you throughout additional plant and turf information.

To schedule an in-person tour, please call 800-369-7246 or email Lindsay Nerad  

Project and Operations Tours 

Each year we offer tours of our facilities and water projects on both sides of the Continental Divide. These tours are a great opportunity for our water users, allottees and participants to learn more about the C-BT and Windy Gap projects, as well as our key programs and future projects. 

Tours are made available first to our water users, allottees and participants. If we have space available for the general public, it will be announced email. Email us if you would like to be added to the interest list.
