Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP)
NISP is an innovative water supply partnership that will provide the Central Weld County Water District (CWCWD) and 14 other water providers in Northern Colorado with the water we need to maintain a high-quality way of life and thriving community.
CWCWD will receive 3,500 acre-feet of permitted annual yield. This is enough for approximately 7,000 families to bathe their kids, prepare healthy meals and provide sanitation necessary for everyday life. NISP water isn’t just for drinking, however.
Our community’s agricultural roots run deep, and NISP will provide needed water supply for agricultural production that drives a significant portion of our economy. It’s no wonder that ag organizations and Northern Colorado businesses have endorsed NISP – they know water supply and economic health are linked.
WaterSecure Supports Our Way of Life
Also of note is WaterSecure – a key element of NISP – that provides an alternative to traditional “buy and dry” practices that caused productive fields and dairies to disappear in recent years. WaterSecure allows farmers to benefit financially from their valuable water rights while keeping water flowing to their fields.
