A system producing heavy snow in the central mountains arrives in SE Colorado overnight Sunday into Monday bringing moisture, windy conditions and colder temperatures. Snow showers will be possible across the I-25 corridor to start the day. This system will produce bands of snow through the day Monday. Areas under these bands will see periods of heavy snowfall which, with windy conditions, could create travel difficulties. Several inches of accumulation will be possible in areas where these bands develop. For more information click the ‘Weather’ tab...
DENVER (AP) -- Federal officials are considering a pipeline to pump water from the Missouri River to western states to deal with increasing overuse of the Colorado River.
The diversion is listed as a possibility after review of more than 100 ideas submitted to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
Bureau officials said the Missouri River Reuse Project will be reviewed as part of a federal study on water supply for the West.
According to published reports, Colorado officials have not taken a position on the proposals.
The Missouri diversion described in federal documents would require a pipeline across Kansas, with water used to fill surface reservoirs and recharge depleted aquifers along the way to metro Denver.
