From email from the Colorado Division of Wildlife (Jennifer Churchill):
Commissioners Bob Streeter and David Brougham will meet with the public on Thursday, January 20 at The Ranch in Loveland to take public comment on the potential impacts of the Moffat Collection System Project.
Denver Water proposes to meet projected future water needs by developing 18,000 acre-feet per year of new, annual firm yield water that would be delivered to the Moffat Treatment Plant and raw water customers upstream of the Moffat Treatment. Denver Water’s preferred project to meet this need is to raise Gross Reservoir in Boulder County to store an additional 72,000 acre-feet of water diverted from the Fraser and Williams Fork river systems.
