Study ordered on closure of road over Dillon Dam
DENVER, Colorado ” Denver Water, the state’s biggest water provider, has ordered a study to determine whether the road over Dillon Dam needs to be closed for security reasons.
Surrounding communities and their leaders have resisted the closure, particularly since they say they were not involved in discussions that led up to it.
Discussions on whether the road needed to be closed were held behind closed doors.
Denver Water spokeswoman Stacy Chesney said board members were concerned that if they made concerns public, the dam might be attacked before it could be protected. No specific threats have been made.
