If NISP is not built, another 60,000 acres of agricultural land would be up, Wilkinson said.
Brian Werner, communication and records department manager for Northern, said the planning for NISP was spurred around 2002 by the municipalities that approached the water conservancy district about the need for future supplies.
The seeds of the concept behind NISP were actually planted many years earlier, Werner said, when the Cache la Poudre River was designated as a wild and scenic river in the 1980s. At that time Northern officials began looking at their more restricted options for tapping the river's water supply.

Northern officials noted that if NISP had been in place during this unusually wet year, it would have been able to capture and store an estimated 56,000 acre feet of water. Although the annual yield of water from NISP is set at 40,000 acre feet, the two reservoirs that are part of the project have a total capacity of about 215,000 acre feet because in some dry years the project will not be permitted to divert Poudre water.

Jack Odor, chairman of the Fort Morgan Water Advisory Board, asked the Northern officials if the project could be phased in to stretch out the financial burden on the participants.
Fort Morgan has committed to participation in NISP for 3,600 acre feet of water, Merrill said. That will cost the city in the neighborhood of $40 million over about 20 to 30 years, depending on how the city finances its participation.

The project has been in the federal permitting process since 2004 and is now in the sixth year of that process.

Ament noted that in 2009 Colorado has allowed some 160,000 more acre feet of water to flow out of the state to Nebraska than it was required to send under interstate water agreements. Last year the state sent nearly 60,000 acre feet more than required, he said.
