Quenching Front Range Thirst

Via Coco, another scheme (this one with private money) to get water from the sparsely populated western Colorado side of the continental divide to the heavily and rapidly growing east:

Time will tell whether Aaron P. Million’s plan to bring water from Flaming Gorge Reservoir to the Front Range will make him a legend in Colorado water lore or just another wild-eyed, big-talker with a water scheme.

Million’s $3 billion project, which he says will be completed in three to five years, would move up to 250,000 acre-feet of water annually from the reservoir on the Utah/Wyoming border.

Water would be pumped through a 400-mile pipeline across southern Wyoming along Interstate 80 to Colorado’s Front Range – serving up to 650,000 homes.
