DILLON, Colo. -- The Dillon Reservoir is expected to fill
sometime in the next few weeks for the first time in four years.
Marc Waage, Denver Water resource manager, says that for several
weeks the reservoir will send overflow down the Lower Blue Valley,
much to the pleasure of kayakers and rafters. Just how much will
depend on the weather and snowpack.
Five years of drought had drained the reservoir to as low as 47
percent of capacity in the spring of 2003, leaving a depressing
landscape of stranded docks, dirt and mud.
