A Look at Northern Water's Pending Water Storage Projects: Chimney Hollow, Glade and Galeton Reservoirs
Thursday, March 39, 2018
The population in northeastern Colorado and along the Front Range is projected to continue to grow at a significant rate. Where will the water come from to support that growth? New water storage projects will be critical to supporting population growth as well as accompanying industrial growth, while also serving the needs of agriculture. This month's luncheon seminar will dive into (no pun intended) Northern Water's planned reservoir projects, which will have region-wide significance for municipal and agricultural water users along the South Platte drainage area.
