Colorado Water Pipeline Study Cancelled
A 550-mile Colorado water pipeline study that proposed diverting water from the Green River to Colorado’s Front Range has been cancelled. A Fort Collins entrepreneur Aaron Million had proposed the pipeline to divert 250,000 acre-feet of water per year from Wyoming's Green River to irrigation systems and water districts on Colorado's Front Range. The Corps of Engineers spent two years studying the project, which probably never had much chance anyway. When Million shifted the purpose of the pipeline from water delivery to hydropower generation, the Corps of Engineers cancelled the study because the shift in purpose made his application incomplete.
