US Senator for the State of Colorado Michael Bennet toured portions of Grand County on Wednesday August 24 with local officials, landowners and water diverters from the Front Range. The tour focused on the Windy Gap and the proposed Windy Gap Bypass and Windy Gap Firming Projects.

"The Windy Gap Project is a great example of a common-sense collaboration that helps meet our water needs while also protecting wildlife and the environment," state Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet. "We have been working with the community on this for years, and it was exciting to see the site first-hand with such a diverse group of partners. This is another great example of the kind of effort we envisioned when we created the Regional Conservation Partnership Program, and we will continue working to support and fund the project."

Bennet and his staff are currently campaigning for Bennet's reelection to the U.S. Senate. This November Bennet faces Republican challenger Darryl Glenn, currently serving as a County Commissioner in El Paso County.
