Here’s the release from the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (Brian Werner):
Club 20, Western Colorado’s leading advocacy organization, has endorsed the Northern Integrated Supply Project. Club 20 stated NISP is a project that “appropriately proposes to develop water supply solutions from within the basin of demand.” The water would come from the Cache la Poudre and South Platte rivers.
Club 20 described NISP as “an environmentally sound project and will help contribute to the economic stability of the agricultural economy by preserving the dry-up of 100 square miles of irrigated ag lands.”
“Club 20’s endorsement is a major boost for NISP. They have been the voice of the Western Slope since 1953. Their endorsement shows that NISP not only serves communities on the Front Range, but does it in a way that doesn’t harm the West Slope,” said Kathy Peterson, NISP Participant Committee Chairperson. “We are especially pleased that Club 20 recognized the project’s efficient use of water within Northeastern Colorado.”
