Lytle Water Solutions team member Chris Fehn, P.E., P.G., presented at this week’s AEG Mile High Chapter Meeting in Golden, Colorado. His talk, titled “An Innovative Model to Solve Colorado’s Projected Front Range Water Crisis” explained LWS’ ongoing project with Parker Water & Sanitation District (PWSD) and the Northeast Colorado Water Cooperative (NECWC). The project began in response to Colorado’s growing need for municipal water supplies and creates an economically and environmentally sound solution to maximize beneficial use of irrigation water supplies in the Lower South Platte River and use some of the increased efficiency to make water available for municipal interests along the Front Range. The result is a highly flexible daily point flow model which utilizes multiple reservoirs, pipelines and exchanges to evaluate the potential of projects to move water from the lower South Platte to the South Denver Metro area.
The prime directive of the local Mile High chapter of AEG is encouraging and facilitating ongoing education and training as well as supporting students and members within the Rocky Mountain region through chapter meetings, field trips, conferences, annual student night, and other events.
