A large refill: Antero Reservoir filling as dam rehab project makes progress

Last year, we emptied Antero Reservoir to clear the way for significant repairs to the 100-year-old dam.

Despite harsh weather conditions and unpredictable construction challenges, we expect to complete the project earlier than originally expected.

Crews recently finished installing a barrier wall inside the dam, and this summer they’re focusing on building the new spillway. With this timeline in place, we can expect to finish construction by the end of 2017.

This spring we started refilling the reservoir, which — depending on snowpack and other conditions — will be fully operational by 2018.
