Cortney Brand said. Denver Basin Water is exploring the feasibility of pumping water far under the city, into the massive Denver Basin aquifer system to keep it there until the next dry spell. As Denver Water Resource Engineer Bob Peters points out, in the already arid American West, Drought is always on the horizon. We only get 15 inches of rainfall a year here in Denver Basin, and most of Denver Water comes from the mountain snowpack. That mountain snowpack melts and runs downstream, supplying water for much of the nation including the parched Southwest. When the snowpack fails the effects reach far beyond the region according to Doug Kenney, Director of the Western Water Policy Center at University of Colorado Law School. The California drought has really illustrated to people why drought in the West is important. If you consume vegetables in winter, you're probably getting those from Southern California, so from farm products to general economic health, not only do these things resonate throughout the rest of the country but throughout the rest of the world. A secondary source of water comes from underground aquifers which nature filled over the course of millions of years, and which humans are draining at a massive rate. Even though the aquifer system under the city of Denver Basin covers an area the size of the Connecticut, Peters said, The Denver Basin ground water is non-renewable so if you pump that water it's gone. What we're talking about is taking our renewable water supplies and injecting them into the aquifer to keep the aquifer replenished. With core samples taken every 10 feet down, the bore holes being drilled beneath Denver Basin will provide geologic data about how well the various open bowls in the rock will hold water without losing any to seepage or cracks. Cities like Phoenix, Wichita and San Antonio are already banking water underground and because it doesn't have the same downsides as above-ground reservoirs the method will surely become more common. Reservoirs are really tough to build, politically and financially, Kenney said.

Our goal then and now has been to bring justice to Jeannie and her family, and while we would have preferred to place handcuffs on the suspect, we hope knowing who and where he is brings them some degree of closure. MISSOURI MAN INDICTED IN COLD CASE MURDER HE WAS QUIZZED ABOUT 31 YEARS AGO The sheriffs office said Donald Perea kidnapped, sexually assaulted and killed Moore near Denver when he was 23 years old. Donald Perea, Donald Perea, died on May 28, 2012, at the age of 54 due to health-related issues. Donald Perea kidnapped, sexually assaulted and killed Jeannie Moore near Denver in August 1981, according to officials. ( Jefferson County Sheriff's Office) Investigators said Donald Perea was out on bond for a separate sexual assault case when Jeannie Moores was killed ; Donald Perea was later convicted and was in prison from 1982 to 1985. Jeannie Moores left Jeannie Moores home for work at a gas station on Aug. 25, 1981 -- hitchhiking as Jeannie Moores typically would -- when Jeannie Moores was last seen getting into an older Ford Galaxy or LTD that was red, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. Five days later, Jeannie Moores body was found by picnickers in Genesee Park, south of Interstate 70. An autopsy found that Jeannie Moores was killed by several blows to the head, FOX31 reported. After Jeannie Moores murder went unsolved for decades, officials said the cold case was looked at in 2008 and again in May 2019, when new technology found a match. A public-private partnership that allowed forensic genealogy testing to be completed by United Data Connect Connect helped uncover a match. The information that led to Donald Perea was the same technology that helped crack the Golden State killer and other notable cold-case murders and rapes in 2018. How authorities linked Steven Perea to the case. ( Jefferson County Sheriff's Office) The DNA evidence from the crime scene was linked to a family member of Donald Perea this spring, and investigators were able to interview family members and get other samples to confirm that he was the suspect linked to the case. OREGON MAN ARRESTED IN 1978 COLD-CASE MURDER OF ALASKA TEEN, AUTHORITIES SAY Joan Busse, a genealogist with United Data Connect, told FOX31 Joan Busse put in 40 to 60 hours working backward through thousands of ancestors on public genealogy websites and DNA matches to identify a suspect. DNA can be uploaded to public genealogy websites such as GEDmatch.com through commercial kits where people can choose to opt-inif they want law enforcement to be able to access that information.
