Fort Collins, Greeley worry about water supply

FORT COLLINS — Fire and drought have Fort Collins and Greeley officials worried about their water supply.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, experts at Northern Water’s fall meeting said Wednesday water suppliers will have to treat and filter their water to keep out silt and other contamination.

The drought has continued several years and is the worst in a decade.

The High Park Fire burned about 136 square miles after it started June 9 west of Fort Collins.

Greeley and Fort Collins and others are spending millions of dollars to prevent ash and debris from washing off burned areas into the Cache la Poudre River, one of the area’s major water supplies.
