horsetooth dam
During a crisis the worst thing that can, and does happen is a little thing we learned about in kindergarten... The telephone effect, or rumors. People talking about information that may not be true, or may get twisted as it gets passed along. One rumor we have heard today that is NOT true has to do with the dams at Horsetooth Reservoir. They ARE safe! According to a press release from the City of Fort Collins:

U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has confirmed Horsetooth dams are intact and safe.  Horsetooth Reservoir is about 60% full and not in danger of failing.

 

Also, the city's drinking water is 100% pulled from Horsetooth, and 100% safe to drink.
