The Stanley Canyon Hydroelectric Project is an excellent example of the maximum use of a natural resource. The project is a combined water supply and hydroelectric facility which received a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) License in September of 1986. The City of Colorado Springs obtains a large portion of its water supply from Rampart Reservoir, located in the front range of the Rockies, and conveys it to the Pine Valley Treatment Plant at the base of the range. Because of the increased demand for water, the City has planned to construct a new conveyance system and to expand its water treatment capacity.
