The Flaming Gorge Project is scaled-down version of a project that was rejected by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in 2012. This pipeline proposal has been put forth by Aaron Million, a Colorado resident, and his business Water Horse Resources LLC. The controversial 375 mile pipeline would move 55,000 acre-feet of water from below Flaming Gorge in Utah, across the I-80 corridor in Wyoming then south as far as Denver.
The Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam is world renown for its stellar fly fishing and rafting. The fish populations have been stressed in recent years due to low high water flows.
