Your input could make the difference for increased winter flows in South Boulder Creek.
Boulder Flycasters will be attending a July 8th Denver Water Commissioners meeting asking for their support of a Boulder proposal to add an environmental pool as part of their Gross Reservoir Expansion Project. We need your help to let the Denver Water Board know Boulder County supports their collaborative effort with Boulder and other cities in our county to provide this important environmental pool. The additional 5k acre feet of storage would be used to provide winter releases to the creek bringing the average daily winter flows to near 7cfs, the minimum flow recommended by the Division of Wildlife. For over fifty years, South Boulder Creek has had reaches of the stream completely dry all winter.
