Antero Reservoir won't be drained

DENVER (AP) - Colorado's largest water utility says it won't have to drain Antero Reservoir after all, with all of the snow that has fallen this April.

Denver Water had planned to drain the reservoir to move its water and store it in other reservoirs during the ongoing drought.

The utility's water resource manager Dave Bennett said Wednesday that while customers still need to save water as the drought continues, the recent snow has helped with water supplies. He says if Antero Reservoir had been drained, it would have taken about three years to refill.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife says the regular bag and possession limit of two trout per angler is effective immediately.

Antero Reservoir also was taken out of service to assist with water management during the 2002 drought.
