This photo gallery features images shot during a Lighthawk aerial photo flight over Gross Dam and Reservoir, west of Boulder.
Denver Water has proposed raising the dam by 131 feet to increase the reservoir’s storage capacity, but the plan is opposed by some neighbors and environmental groups. Gross Reservoir lies along South Boulder Creek and receives water from the western side of the Continental Divide through the Moffatt Tunnel.
