Frugal Film 2021: Gross Dam & Reservoir

My February 2021 offering to the Frugal Film Project. Almost didn’t make the deadline last week, but fortunately my film turnaround time at Old School Photo Labs was quick. Thank you guys! So here it is:

Gross Dam & Reservoir

On one of our afternoons wandering the Foot Hills of the Rocky Mountain Front Range, we ventured to one of our favorite sights: Groos Dam and Reservoir.

The Gross Dam is part of an extensive network of reservoirs that supply the Denver Water System. It was named for Denver Water former Chief Engineer Dwight D. Gross. 

Approved for expansion July 2020. The design of the addition  is expected to be completed in 2021.  It will add 10 feet to the height of the dam.

Summary of the Current Numbers

Capacity: 41,811 acre-feet

Elevation: 7,282 feet

Surface Area:  440 Acres

Shoreline:  10.9 miles
