Gardner Applauds Gross Reservoir Expansion Project’s Approval

Washington, D.C. – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today applauded the approval of the Gross Reservoir Expansion Project that will provide Denver Water with additional water storage to meet the demands of Colorado’s largest city. In March, Gardner, along with other members of the Colorado congressional delegation, sent a letter in support of Denver Water’s application for the Gross Reservoir Expansion Project.


“After 13 years of going through the federal regulatory approval process, the Gross Reservoir Expansion Project will move forward and result in a new, reliable source of water for Denver Water,” said Gardner. “This project is important for Colorado’s long-term water infrastructure plan and I’ll continue to do everything I can at the federal level to support our state’s water needs.”



Cory Gardner is a member of the U.S. Senate serving Colorado. He sits on the Energy & Natural Resources Committee, the Foreign Relations Committee, the Commerce, Science, & Transportation Committee, and the Budget Committee, and is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy and Subcommittee on Energy.
