The Dillon Reservoir was finished in 1963 and is the largest reservoir in the Denver water system. After the completion of the project, the town of Dillon relocated around the hydroelectric dam. Today Dillon, Silverthorne, and Frisco are all next to each other, making it easy to get from town to town. Local public transportation services the area.
