City Comments on Latest NISP Environmental Report

The Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) is a proposal for a water development project that includes Glade Reservoir, a reservoir slightly larger than Horsetooth proposed to be near Ted's place. Learn more about how NISP works.

Due to the number and complexity of significant comments received about the DEIS the Corps subsequently developed a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement in 2015. Find the reports here.

In both efforts the City comments focused on NISPs potential impacts to City of Fort Collins investments and assets ranging from drinking water, wastewater, river ecology, stormwater and recreation. The Citys comments:

Next Steps

  • Final Environmental Impact Statement
  • Record of Decision (or ROD)
  • State Water Quality Certification
  • State Wildlife Mitigation Plan
