The project will raise the height of the existing 104 m dam by about 40 m, increasing reservoir capacity from 1.58-million cubic metres of water to 14.68-million cubic metres of water.

The project will also increase the total output of the Gross dam’s hydroelectric power plant from 7.6 MW to 8.1 MW. The expansion will make the Gross dam the highest dam in Colorado and will increase the dam size to 1.145-million cubic metres of concrete, about half the volume of Hoover dam.

Jobs to Be Created

Value

Duration
The first filling of the reservoir is expected in April 2026.

It will assist Denver Water with project controls – including schedule, cost and document control, and eventually construction management – which started in May and will continue to the first filling of the reservoir, expected in April 2026. Once permits have been secured, dam construction is expected to be implemented in three phases over a total of four to five years.
