DENVER (AP) – Federal regulators have granted a rehearing for further consideration of a Colorado businessman’s proposal to build a pipeline to deliver water from southwestern Wyoming to southeast Wyoming and Colorado’s Front Range.
Aaron Million of Fort Collins had sought a permit from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for his project because a system of turbines and reservoirs that he plans to build along the pipeline would generate electricity. However a FERC official said in February that Million’s application was premature and lacked specifics.
Million then asked for a rehearing. The commission on Monday said that in order to afford additional time to review matters that were raised, it was granting a rehearing for further consideration.
