The idea of pumping water from Green Mountain Reservoir back upstream to Dillon Reservoir to be used by Douglas County has been resurrected 15 years after first being proposed, according to the Denver Post [September 8, 2005, "Long route for water solution"]. From the article, "Originally built to replace water shipped to the Front Range by the Colorado-Big Thompson Project, Green Mountain Reservoir is a vital part of Colorado's water infrastructure. It allows thousands of users from Granby to Grand Junction to divert water, even when more-senior users have priority. In 2003, the State Water Supply Initiative tapped the Green Mountain pumpback as a potential solution to the Front Range's water crunch. The study predicted that the statewide demand for water will exceed supply by about 20 percent in 2030."
