Its so fare ahead of schedule this is good stuff...
They are going to start pumping the water in>>>>>>>yea
For those that don't know this is the largest lake/Dam to be built in the last 40 yrs on the front range
Sorry electrice motors only...
And from everything I have ever read about Dams,,, its the first 8 yrs that is the best fishing...

On Feb. 24, 2010 the State Engineers Office of Dam Safety approved a request by Parker Water and Sanitation District to allow the first water to be stored in Rueter-Hess. before the approval, water within Newlin Gulch was pumped around the construction site. With the approval, the water will be stored behind the dam.

The approval allows for water to be stored to a depth of 43 feet, which will allow up to 5,000 acre-feet of water.

This Dam was not going to be done till 2012 but they are ahead of scheduel..

We can watch the Dam being fillied with water,,That might be alot like watching paint dry, but here is the live streaming vid.... [log in for link]
