SMLC joins effort to protect South Platte River flows

South Metro Land Conservancy has made a contribution to the Environmental Pool, a joint effort by Denver Water and the Greenway Foundation to add 500 acre feet of water to the environmental storage at Chatfield Reservoir. This pool of water rights will allow water to be released from the reservoir into the South Platte River during low-flow periods in order to support the environmental health, fish and wildlife habitat, and recreational use of the river through our community.

SMLC’s contribution will add an acre-foot of storage to the environmental pool.
