Effort to form Flaming Gorge task force under fire

DENVER — Officials representing Colorado river basins are set to meet Wednesday to consider forming a task force to study proposals to build a pipeline from Wyoming’s Flaming Gorge Reservoir to Colorado.

Some conservationists say it’s a waste of time.

Western Resource Advocates and other groups say no one knows if Colorado River compacts allow the state to divert as much water as some have proposed doing. They say that until there’s an answer, there’s no sense spending time and money to study plans to tap the reservoir.

Entrepreneur Aaron Million is behind one proposal for a Flaming Gorge pipeline, and Frank Jaeger of the Parker Water & Sanitation District in suburban Denver is pushing a competing proposal.
