    A project that would draw water from the Cache la Poudre River and create a reservoir larger than Horsetooth northwest of Fort Collins passed a major milestone Friday with the release of the final environmental impact statement.

    The Army Corps of Engineer’s 1,400-page analysis lays out the anticipated direct and indirect impacts of the Northern Integrated Supply Project, a $1.1 billion water-storage system designed to supply 15 communities and water districts in Northern Colorado.

    The proposal from the Berthoud-based Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District — Northern Water — would result in the 170,000-acre-foot Glade Reservoir northwest of Fort Collins and 45,600-acre-foot Upper Galeton Reservoir near Ault in northern Weld County.

    The system would supply 40,000 acre-feet of water per year to the participating entities. The cities of Loveland and Fort Collins aren’t among the 15 partners, but the Fort Collins-Loveland Water District, which supplies customers north of Loveland and within south Fort Collins, is.

    Friday’s release starts a 45-day comment period, the final opportunity for opponents and proponents to register their views before the Corps of Engineers registers its final decision, which is expected next year.
