Incorporated in 1901, the North Poudre Irrigation Company (NPIC) currently owns and manages 19 storage reservoirs and approximately 200 miles of ditches for northern Colorado agricultural and municipal owners. The collection documents NPIC through annual reports, stock certificates, financial records, legal documents, engineering reports, correspondence, meeting minutes, photographs, and maps. Also documented are two organizations which merged with NPIC, the Mountain Supply Ditch Company and the Box Elder Ditch and Reservoir Company, and groups in which NPIC participated. For more information see the finding aid.

The collection, with materials dated 1882 to 1997, contains annual reports, meeting minutes, early financial information, field survey books, reports, correspondence, legal records, earlier companies’ records, scrapbooks, and photographs. Halligan Reservoir and Fossil Creek Reservoir are common topics.
