From The Fort Collins Coloradoan (Kevin Duggan):

The public is invited to an open house on the Northern Integrated Supply Project, or NISP, from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 13 at the Lincoln Center, 417 W. Magnolia St.

The open house will provide information regarding a proposal by Fort Collins staff members to explore the potential for negotiated outcomes for NISP with Northern Water, the primary proponent of the…project…

Fort Collins has not supported the project as described in a draft Environmental Impact Statement for several reasons, including its potential impacts on city water facilities and the health of the river through the city.

City staff members have proposed discussing mitigation for the project with Northern Water officials and possibly entering into negotiations…

City Council is scheduled to consider staff’s recommendation during its Feb. 21 meeting.
