Fort Collins now ranks as fourth largest city in Colorado; neighboring communities have also been growing. Regional population growth means increasing demand for water. The Northern Integrated Supplu Project (NISP) would impound Glade and Gleton reservoirs to meet this growing demand.

Though everyone agrees on the need for water, not everyone agrees on how to provide the water. Three speakers with different perspectives will engage discussion about the challenges of water resources.
