Gross Reservoir Expansion

Gross Reservoir Expansion: Conversation or Litigation?

Check out a June 22, 2019 editorial in the Boulder Daily Camera as well as Jerd Smith’s article in Water Education Colorado Newsletter. The two articles present an excellent overview of the difficult negotiations surrounding the proposed expansion of Gross Reservoir in Boulder County. TU supports the proposed reservoir expansion. We disagree with the well-intentioned but non-local environmental groups who lack our local insight and perspective. TU understands that real improvements to our rivers will result from compromising with Denver Water and that endless litigation will not result in improvements to our rivers.
