Help ensure a natural and sustainable future for the High Line Canal

Aug 20 2019

For many years, the High Line Canal has been a cherished asset across our region. An extraordinary feat of engineering, now nearly 150 years old, the High Line Canal delivered irrigation water from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains to the plains. Today, the Canal, still owned and maintained by Denver Water, is outliving its historic purpose as an irrigation utility and has taken on new life as a 71-mile recreational and ecological corridor.

The High Line Canal Conservancy, along with Denver Water, Mile High Flood District and local jurisdictions are working together to transform the Canal into an inspiring model of green infrastructure for stormwater management through an initiative called the Stormwater Transformation and Enhancement Program (STEP).
