Commemorating the facility’s first delivery of water to Fort Collins in June 1883, the Big Splash event is free to the public. Donations are welcome and go toward the nonprofit Poudre Landmarks Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, protect, and interpret the architectural and cultural heritage of the Fort Collins area.

Extra bike racks will be available for visitors who stop by while enjoying Fort Collins’ many bike trails.
