Municipal utilities in Fort Collins and Greeley continue to collaborate on the management and costs of mitigation for non-federal lands in the Poudre watershed, and are working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other groups to acquire federal assistance.
NRCS recently granted an extension of funding, allowing rehabilitation efforts to resume in July 2014.
Ultimately, utilities customers may pay higher rates for their water to cover the remediation efforts.
The NRCS Emergency Water Protection program works in partnership with local sponsors and provides cost-share assistance designed to assist landowners to relieve imminent threats to life and property caused by natural disasters, including wildfires.
