The Cache la Poudre River is in Trouble
and Needs Your Help!
On June 19th the Corps of Engineers released the long-awaited NISP/Glade Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS). What the Corps and Glade Reservoir proponents are now proposing has changed significantly, and it is worse in many ways than before. The public only has until August 4th to comment on their proposal. CLICK HERE for information on how you can help!"
Numerous threats endanger the Cache la Poudre River, most importantly
the proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP). This huge
water storage project and its two proposed reservoirs (Glade and
Galeton) will drain ever more water from this already endangered river.
This project is not a sustainable solution to Colorado's growing water
problems and better alternatives are available.
Save the Poudre is determined to stop the NISP project. But more
importantly, our ultimate goal is to restore the Cache la Poudre River to a
healthy and vibrant condition.
