Abstract: The Northern Integrated Supply Project Final Environmental Impact Statement evaluates the effects of constructing and operating the proposed NISP located in Larimer and Weld Counties in northeastern Colorado. NISP is a collaborative effort among 15 Participants coordinated by the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District to provide approximately 40,000 acre-feet of new reliable water supply, which would meet a portion of the Participants’ estimated current and future water supply needs. NISP would result in the placement of fill material into waters of the U.S., which requires authorization from the Corps under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. As proposed by Northern Water, NISP would consist of the construction and operation of Glade Reservoir with a capacity of 170,000 acre-feet. Associated with Glade Reservoir would be a forebay, pump station, diversion structure, and canal upgrades to convey water diverted from the Poudre River to the proposed reservoir. A portion of the project’s yield would be conveyed to the Participants via a new Poudre River diversion structure upstream of the Mulberry Water Reclamation Facility and an associated pipeline. Glade Reservoir would inundate a section of U.S. 287 and require the relocation of the highway.
