Rueter-Hess Reservoir

 

Rueter-Hess Reservoir is a Long-Term Solution

Rueter-Hess Reservoir will serve the District's ongoing water needs and solve its long-term water shortage problem. It is located about three miles southwest of downtown Parker on Newlin Gulch, which is a tributary drainage of Cherry Creek. The dam will rise 185 feet, hold 72,000 acre feet of water when full, and the reservoir will encompass 1170 acres, which is about one and half times the size of Cherry Creek Reservoir.

Here is a history of the project.
