Sampling on the Big Thompson River upstream of Lake Estes

Since the City owns very little land within the source watersheds, it’s necessary to participate in stakeholder collaborations and rely on sound scientific information collected through monitoring efforts to help guide watershed planning and management efforts that protect the City’s drinking water sources.

Fort Collins Utilities collaborates with the City of Greeley, the Tri-Districts, Northern Water, and other entities on water quality monitoring and watershed assessments. This sustainable approach to monitoring and managing large watershed reduces sampling costs and provides a significant shared knowledge base benefiting multiple stakeholder groups. For data requests and more information about the Utilities Source Watershed Water Quality Monitoring Program, contact Utilities.
