DENVER (AP) -- A key document on a proposal to enlarge Gross Reservoir in Boulder County is scheduled to be released in February.

Gov. John Hickenlooper had pushed for the final environmental impact statement for Denver Water's Moffat Collection System Project to be released this year. But the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Monday it will release it in February and give the public time to comment on it before it decides whether to issue a permit for it.

Denver Water says the project is needed to help ensure the water supply to the 1.3 million people it serves as it collects water from the Fraser and Williams Fork River basins.

Conservation groups including Trout Unlimited say they're pleased officials are taking time to study how the project will affect river flows.
