"Politicians are like weathervanes.

The NISP project is expected to cost at least $500 million in capital costs plus potentially hundreds of millions of dollars in interest and huge annual operating costs. Thirteen communities and water districts have subscribed to shares in NISP. Many are outside the Cache la Poudre Watershed. Most intend to finance it with debt loads of $2,000 to $5,000 per resident. Repaying these costs requires higher water rates for existing residents and extraordinary population growth to pay tap fees. As of March, 2006, their requested allocations were as follows:
