Abstract : The proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) is a regional water supply project designed to serve the current and future water needs of 12 towns and water districts (the Participants) in Larimer, Weld, Morgan, and Boulder counties. The Participants are a group of rapidly growing communities and domestic water districts located throughout the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (District). The Participants are Central Weld County Water District, Town of Eaton, Town of Erie, City of Evans, Fort Collins-Loveland Water District, City of Fort Lupton, City of Fort Morgan, City of Lafayette, Lefthand Water District, Morgan County Quality Water District, Town of Severance, and the Town of Windsor. The proposed Project would be constructed and owned by the District. While the District would retain ownership and operational responsibility of the Project, the Participants would own a perpetual contractual right to a defined portion of the Project facilities and a defined portion of the water diverted by the project. The Proposed Action is construction of Glade Reservoir with a capacity of approximately 170,000 acre-feet (AF). Associated with Glade Reservoir would be a forebay, pump station, and diversion structure and canal upgrade to convey water diverted from the Cache la Poudre River to the proposed reservoir. A pipeline connecting the proposed Glade Reservoir to the existing Horsetooth Reservoir is proposed to be constructed if needed. As proposed, Glade Reservoir would inundate a section of U.S. 287 and require the relocation of about 7 miles of the highway. Additionally, Glade Reservoir would inundate a section of the Munroe Canal (also known as the North Poudre Supply Canal) requiring a portion of the canal to be rerouted.
