###

The public is invited to attend the first administrative hearing for this water export application for a diversion from the Green River and a pipeline to carry water to the communities of Colorado's Front Range. The pipeline will basically follow Interstate 80 through Wyoming and then the Interstate 25 corridor through Colorado. The withdrawal is 50,000 acre-feet per year and includes hydroelectric power generation (pumpback projects) and the installation cost, at minimum, will likely be over 4 billion dollars; $1,600 per acre foot for a time period of 50-years.

In 2012, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission denied the application for a watr pipeline from the Green River to the Front Range. CLICK HERE for more information.
