From the Northern Colorado Business Report:

Under consideration will be the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District’s proposal to divert additional water from the Upper Colorado Basin to the proposed new Chimney Hollow Reservoir west of Longmont, and Denver Water’s plan to firm up the yield from its existing water rights on the West Slope, primarily by enlarging Boulder’s Gross Reservoir and diverting additional water from the Fraser and Williams Fork rivers. Denver and Northern are both proposing steps to address impacts to fish and wildlife on both sides of the Continental Divide. Both the mitigation and enhancement plans will be presented to the Commission at the meeting.
