Business of the Month
September - Northern Water
Congratulations to Northern Water for being voted business of the month for September. They are involved in so many interesting and important water projects in Colorado. The Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District and its Municipal Sub-district provide water to Northeastern Colorado from the Colorado-Big Thompson and Windy Gap projects.

Many factors play into how much water people use in a day, including where they live and their lifestyle. As the population continues to grow we know water shortages can occur anywhere, which is why we all must be smarter about how we use water. Taking care of this precious natural resource and practicing efficiency in daily life should be a priority for everyone.

Northern Water views water efficiency as an integral part of our management strategy, long-range planning is to encourage good stewards of our water resources. Which is why they are invested in providing  water efficiency information and education to the public , green industry professionals, municipalities and Northern Water allottees. They want to ensure we do more with less water and can secure this resource for future generations.

If you have not been to their facilities, you will want to go. You are welcome to go anytime to visit the gardens on the west side of their property, have a picnic, read a book, or just stroll around with your friends and family. They are happy to set up tours as well. Northern Water
