Million Will Try Again On Wyoming-Colorado Pipeline Permit

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The businessman behind a proposal to build a pipeline to carry water from southwestern Wyoming to Colorado’s Front Range isn’t giving up despite the latest setback for the plan.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Thursday dismissed Fort Collins businessman Aaron Million’s application to build the pipeline.

But Million says he’ll resubmit the application in a couple of weeks.

The commission said Million’s application was premature because there is no pipeline and no specifics about the proposed pipeline.

Million says he sees FERC’s objections as relatively minor.

He envisions drawing up to 250,000 acre-feet a year of water from Flaming Gorge Reservoir.

The idea has drawn strong opposition from the state of Wyoming, local governments and various groups.
