On July 22, 2011 the US Army Corp of Engineers (ACoE) issued a notice that the permit application (and EIS) was canceled for the Million Conservation Resource Group for a proposed pipeline project from Flaming Gorge Reservoir (Green River in Utah and Wyoming) to the Front Range cities and farms of Colorado.

The application will now be the consideration of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for reasons of including small hydropower facilities where gravity along the pipeline route allows for power generation.

The assigned Docket Number for the application of the Regional Watershed Supply Project is P-14263, and was submitted by Aaron Million of Wyco Power and Water Inc. The FERC website is here, but be aware the two documents listed are not yet downloadable for some reason. After several attempts, we did manage to get one document, which is listed below.
