Loveland: City Acquires Additional Windy Gap Water

The City Council approved a resolution authorizing the acquisition of an additional 3,000 acre-feet of water in the Windy Gap Firming Project, which increases the City’s participation in the Windy Gap Firming Project to 10,000 acre-feet of water storage. The storage was available because the City of Longmont reduced its participation in Windy Gap. Windy Gap water ($18,500 per acre foot) is more affordable than Colorado Big-Thompson shares ($26,000 an acre-foot), so this was an opportunity to save money and get more water for future growth.
