HistoryThis canal runs from Boulder County through Golden, Louisville and Eldorado Springs Quadrangles. It belongs to Denver Water Department, and carries water from Gross Reservoir to Ralston Reservoir area to Clear Creek, for the purpose of replacing water down stream on the South Platte River that Denver takes out of the upper South Platte.
