A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
But Pueblo officials and antigrowth groups are opposing the 900
million dollar project.
Colorado Springs has the right to the water and has proposed
taking it from just below the Pueblo Reservoir Dam.
Pueblo wants the water taken out below the city itself to
preserve flows through town.
The project would deliver enough water to serve up to
900-thousand people by the year 2040. It also includes two new
reservoirs in El Paso County and several pump stations.
Construction could begin in 2005 and be completed by 2007.
