The diversion is listed as a possibility after review of more than 100 ideas submitted to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. 

Bureau officials said Tuesday the Missouri River Reuse Project will be reviewed as part of a federal study on water supply for the West.

According to the Denver Post, Colorado officials have not taken a position on the proposals. 

The Missouri diversion described in federal documents would require a pipeline across Kansas, with water used to fill surface reservoirs and recharge depleted aquifers along the way to metro Denver.
