Williams Fork Reservoir

Publication Date: 

Owned and operated by the Denver Water Board, the Williams Fork Dam & Power Plant was constructed to provide mitigation to west slope water users whenever Denver diverts water during periods of downstream senior river calls and stores the water in Dillon Reservoir or water is diverted from the Williams Fork and Fraser River collection system for delivery through the Moffat Tunnel. The water stored in Dillon Reservoir is ultimately delivered to the City of Denver through the Roberts Tunnel.
