Fountain Creek Watershed
Flood Control And Greenway District

Your Home Watershed

We all live in a watershed. A watershed is an area of land that drains into a common point such as a river, stream, lake or the ocean. The Fountain Creek Watershed encompasses 927 miles of land and water from Palmer Lake to Pueblo, including Pike’s Peak. In 2009, Watershed District was established as a Special District under Title 32 of the Colorado Revised Statutes to preserve and protect the Fountain Creek Watershed.   The District’s collaborative, multi-jurisdictional work focuses on enhancing our waterways and greenways for the benefit of citizens and wildlife alike for today and for future generations. We care about clean and safe waterways, water quality, and improving recreational opportunities for improved quality of life for all.

Fountain Creek Watershed has drawn people to its banks for hundreds of years. There are many studies that have been completed to help understand its issues and opportunities.
