January 29, 2013--Western Resource Advocates lauds Colorado Water Conservation Board vote to kill Flaming Gorge Task Force (North Forty News)
The Colorado Water Conservation Board today voted overwhelmingly to end funding for the Flaming Gorge Task Force, which had been considering future large-scale water diversion projects such as the Flaming Gorge Pipeline.
Prolonged drought and a rising population have put the squeeze on Western Slope water supplies.
On Friday, a task force of water interests from across Colorado charged to look into the feasibility of tapping the Green River met in Colorado Springs to discuss whether it’s possible or desirable to build a Flaming Gorge pipeline.
The federal government dealt Fort Collins entrepreneur Aaron Million’s Flaming Gorge Pipeline proposal another setback Thursday morning. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission denied Wyco Power and Water, Inc.’s appeal of the agency’s earlier dismissal of Wyco’s application for a federal feasibility of the proposed pipeline.

January 25, 2012--Water wars: Colorado River activists to rally at EPA against more diversions (Denver Westword)
In the next few weeks, federal regulators will decide whether the Upper Colorado River needs additional protections in the face of growing demands from thirsty Front Range towns.
December 23, 2011--Colorado River District opposes Flaming Gorge pumpback proposal (Colorado Independent)
The Colorado River District is opposing a proposal to pump water from Flaming Gorge Reservoir in southwest Wyoming through a pipeline to Colorado's Front Range.
October 6, 2011--FERC finds Flaming Gorge pipeline application deficient, raises jurisdictional questions (Colorado Independent)
One version of a proposed 500-plus-mile water pipeline from southwestern Wyoming to Colorado’s Front Range was dealt a blow by a federal regulatory agency that found the application deficient on Wednesday.
Embattled Fort Collins entrepreneur Aaron Million has until July 5 to inform the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers whether he wants the agency to proceed with the environmental review of his Regional Watershed Supply Project, which would pipe water 550 miles from Wyoming's Flaming Gorge Reservoir to Front Range water suppliers.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has suspended its evaluation of a proposed pipeline to carry water from southwestern Wyoming to the Front Range of Colorado while the developer apparently considers whether to ask a different federal agency to carry on the work.
