Halligan Water Supply Project



In September 2003, Fort Collins City Council adopted the Water Supply and Demand Management Policy. This process identified a need for additional long-term water storage. Capturing surplus water during wet and average years allows for a supply that can be used during drought periods or times of increased need. The policy was updated in November 2012, which restated the need to address these water supply concerns and continue working toward acquiring additional water storage.

If approved, the Halligan Water Supply Project will help Fort Collins meet future water needs. Careful planning and analysis determined enlarging Halligan reservoir is the most cost-effective solution and may have less environmental impact compared to other options.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will determine if a permit will be issued and Fort Collins City Council will ultimately decide if Halligan Reservoir will be enlarged.
