Introduction

Waterways are vital to everyone’s quality of life for drinking, watering crops, or fishing and other recreational opportunities. A watershed is what feeds our waterways. It’s a region that drains into a river, river system or other body of water. Why is watershed protection important? Improving our waterways helps with water quality, stormwater management creating  recreational opportunities, and natural habitat for wildlife. 

The Fountain Creek Watershed is a 927 square mile area located along the central front range of Colorado, Palmer Divide to the north, Pikes Peak to the west, and an area 20 miles to the east of Colorado Springs. To the south, it drains to the Arkansas River at Pueblo and ultimately to the Gulf of Mexico.

The Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District was created in 2009 to manage, administer and fund improvements in the watershed. The goal is to mitigate flooding, erosion and sedimentation, address water quality issues, improve drainage, partner for protection of open space and develop recreational opportunities. The District is not only concerned with watershed area mitigation, but also impacts on downstream neighbors.

We want your input to better understand levels of awareness that can help influence our District’s work in the watershed as well as feedback on topics for our enewsletter articles. Your participation in this brief 5-8 minute survey is greatly appreciated!
