Sampling on the Big Thompson River upstream of Lake Estes

Fort Collins Utilities collaborates with the City of Greeley, the Tri-Districts, Northern Water and the Big Thompson Watershed Forum on water quality monitoring and assessments.

Routine water quality monitoring of components of the C-BT Project upstream of Horsetooth Reservoir is conducted by Northern Water and the U.S. Geological Survey for the Big Thompson Watershed Forum. The City is a major financial contributor to the Forum and Utilities representatives serve on the Forum's Board of Directors and the Science and Monitoring Committee. Staff assists the Forum with database management and reporting issues.

This sustainable approach to monitoring large watersheds reduces sampling costs and provides a significant shared knowledge base.
