Public Works staff, Todd Fessenden, Amber Rehfeld and Jon Coyle, attended Northern Colorado's Water Conservation District's (NCWCD) East Slope Tour this week. Sites visited included Carter Lake, Horsetooth Reservoir, the Watson Lake Fish Bypass and the future sites of Windy Gap Firming Project's Chimney Hollow Reservoir and NISP's Glade Reservoir.
NCWCD is the primary supplier of raw (untreated) water to the Town, mainly from the Colorado Big Thompson project on the western slope. More information is available here
The tour group also visited the Trout Hydro Turbine facility which supplies enough electricity for 57,000 homes. Erie is planning a similar (smaller) facility at the Lynn R Morgan Water Treatment Facility.
