Public meeting set to discuss Windy Gap project

GRANBY – Colorado Wildlife Commissioners Dennis Buechler and Allan Jones will hold a public meeting in Granby to hear concerns from the public on the potential impacts of the proposed Windy Gap Firming Project.

The meeting will be held at the Inn at Silver Creek (62927 US Highway 40) 6-9 p.m. Oct. 21.

The Windy Gap Firming Project is a proposal from Northern Water Conservancy District designed to improve the reliability of Northern’s distribution system. If approved, the District could store available water in a new Front Range reservoir to ensure reliable, or “firm,” future deliveries. The project is undergoing a federal environmental review and the Colorado Wildlife Commission anticipates providing input to the review process once all potential impacts are identified.
