You care about Colorado’s environment. Help us keep covering it.


Ellen Malan, of Denver, relaxes at Gross Reservoir outside Boulder on July 1, 2019. Denver Water is planning a major expansion of the reservoir that will increase height of the Gross Reservoir Dam by 131 feet and water storage by 77,000 acre-feet. Local residents and environmental groups are fighting against the expansion due to concerns about environmental impacts and the lack of conservation efforts.
