Community News
  • The Bureau of Reclamation published a news release on March 1, 2024, outlining Colorado-Big Thompson Project operations during on-going work at Pole Hill Power Plant that will result in resuming diversions of Project water through the Adams Tunnel. Pumping from Farr Pump Plant will create rapidly thinning ice through the Granby Pump Canal, Shadow Mountain Reservoir and the connecting channel between Shadow Mountain Reservoir and Grand Lake. Thinning ice will also occur at the inlet to West Portal on Grand Lake. Public taking part in recreational activities on both Shadow Mountain Reservoir and Grand Lake should be made aware that the ice thickness in these areas could change quickly and may not support activities it had previously this winter.
