Spring Water Users Meeting Canceled
Northern Water is monitoring public health concerns surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, known as COVID-19. While we will continue to deliver water to our constituents, we are also watching out for the health and safety of our employees, participants and allottees. With the new advisements from the State of Colorado to cancel any gatherings in excess of 50 people, Northern Water has canceled its Spring Water Users Meeting originally scheduled for April 7. Individuals who were registered will be contacted.
In an annual event targeted for Northern Water allottees and water users, the Spring Water Users Meeting will offer an opportunity for users of Colorado-Big Thompson Project water to offer direct input to Northern Water Board members and administrators regarding the 2020 C-BT Quota. At the meeting of the Northern Water Board on April 9, the Board will consider how much to add to the 50 percent initial quota set in November.
This annual meeting will offer updates on Northern Water activities and perspective on the water picture heading into the 2020 season. Guest speakers will include Corey DeAngelis, the Division 1 Engineer from the Colorado Division of Water Resources, and Jeff Reiker, Area Manager for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's Eastern Colorado Area Office. The lunch keynote will look at the recovery of the Goshen/Gering-Fort Laramie Canal following the catastrophic collapse of the tunnel that occurred in July 2019. Numerous staff from Northern Water will also provide project updates, Colorado River updates and more.
C-BT Introductory Workshop
Join us after Northern Water’s Spring Water Users Meeting for a dive into the Colorado-Big Thompson Project. This workshop is geared toward allottees, water resources managers and the general public who may have a general understanding of Northern Water and its operations but seek a deeper understanding of the history of how the C-BT Project works, how Northern Water partners with Reclamation, and a high-level overview of some of Northern Water’s programs and policies. This workshop will be the first in a series that will continue during the spring and summer months.
