A view of Cheesman Reservoir, created by Cheesman Dam, one of the dams that slows and captures water from the South Platte River for use as part of Denver, Colorado's, drinking-water supply. Cheesman was the first reservoir of Denver’s mountain storage facilities that helped expand the Denver Water utility’s system. Except for a small finger of the reservoir where fishers are allowed to try their luck, the dam and its vast reservoir are tightly secured and off-limits to human visitors, their boats and camping equipment, and their animals.
