Fort Collins loses water right

FORT COLLINS — Failure to file required paperwork has cost Fort Collins a water right on the Poudre River it has held for 28 years.

The right was intended to help fill Halligan Reservoir on the North Fork of the Poudre River if a project to enlarge the reservoir is ever built.

The city had a conditional right it planned to use to meet future water needs and protect the city’s water supply during drought.

City officials are now trying to determine what impact the mistake might have and how it happened.
