Gross Reservoir Expansion Project
In response to community input, we’ve adjusted our approach on activities that will affect local residents in and around Coal Creek Canyon during construction. Our engagement with the community has resulted in many tangible improvements, detailed here.
While some work, such as actual concrete dam construction, will require 24-hour construction, we will continue to seek community input on topics such as traffic control plans, hauling traffic schedules, viewshed reclamation, tree removal plans, and other construction-related activities.
Denver Water understands that our work is likely to cause inconvenience for many residents and stakeholders in the immediate vicinity of Gross Reservoir. We are committed to working closely with stakeholders to ensure safety, be considerate neighbors and retain open, two-way communication channels throughout the project and beyond.
