LOVELAND, Colo. -- The Bureau of Reclamation has finalized its Grand Lake Water Clarity Technical Review and Work Plan that addresses concerns of water clarity at Colorado's Grand Lake. The report is available at www.usbr.gov/gp/ecao.
"We appreciate the participation of our partners and stakeholders in this very important process," said Eastern Colorado Area Manager, Mike Collins. "It has helped us streamline the process and take an important step forward."
The purpose of the Technical Review is to provide a roadmap outlining the steps required to transition numerous proposed alternatives to improve the clarity of Grand Lake into a 30% engineering design. The Technical Review considers non-construction operational changes, as well as potential constructed alternatives.
