No More Funding For Flaming Gorge Task Force

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — Colorado water officials have decided against more funding for a task force studying issues surrounding proposals for Colorado to use water from the Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Wyoming.

The Associated Press reports the Colorado Water Conservation Board decided this week that further study could be handled by the state’s Interbasin Compact Committee, which addresses statewide water issues.

The task force was formed after businessman Aaron Million proposed building a multibillion-dollar pipeline from the reservoir to deliver water to Colorado, and a coalition of water providers said they were exploring a competing proposal. The task force concluded in a report this year that state leaders should first agree on how they want to meet Colorado’s water needs, whether that’s through new reservoirs, conservation or other options.
