(Fairplay,CO - Shot on 4/14/04) An old Olympia beer can sits in the dried up lake bed of Antero Reservoir near the last bit of water left in the water holding facility Wednesday. Denver Water's Antero Reservoir near Fairplay, Co. has been effectively empty for more than years now after the water was sent downstream to help dilute the toxic runoff that was making its way into Cheeseman Reservoir after the Hayman Fire. The 20,000 acre foot Antero has remained empty because there hasn't been enough snowpack in the surrounding mountains to refill it. Denver Water employees onsite at Antero Reservoir said there probably won't be enough this year either to refill it. (Photo by Marc Piscotty/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
