It’s one of Denver’s most vital natural resources: Dillon Reservoir is the largest source of water that’s eventually pumped into the metro area. And it turns 50 this year.
The water is down considerably after two years of dry weather. It’s still down about 28 feet but Bob Evans, manager at the marina, says the level is rising quickly.
All the spring snow is giving a big boost to Lake Dillon.
The same system that was bringing rain to the Front Range on Monday and Tuesday was dumping even more snow in Colorado’s mountains.
The marina at Dillon Reservoir is getting a $2 million makeover, but crews have to move fast, before too much snow melts.
