CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Federal energy regulators have decided to review a Colorado businessman's plans to build a 500-mile water pipeline from Wyoming to Colorado. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission says it will conduct a preliminary review of plans by Fort Collins businessman Aaron

Million.

                 Million wants to build a water pipeline from western Wyoming to Colorado's Front Range. He originally asked the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to review the plan - but the Corps stopped after Million began saying his project involved hydropower.
     
     The project has spawned opposition from many in western Wyoming. Green River Mayor Hank Castillon says a coalition of local governments will continue to oppose it.
