Aaron Million has been working for several years to get his idea of a water pipeline from the Green River and Flaming Gorge to the Front Range of Colorado approved. He recently said he “can see the home corral from here” (Associated Press) in his efforts to get the desired approval. Despite huge opposition in Utah and Wyoming he feels his new plan to build hydroelectric facilities along the way will make the project more palatable and an easier sell to the permitting regulatory agencies. Mr. Million’s proposal continues to evolve based on the feedback he gets as he proposes plans to build this pipeline. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has accepted his preliminary permit application on Tuesday, October 20, 2011, which opens a 60-day public comment period. Watch this page for more information and methods to get your comments to those who will be deciding the fate of this application.
