Probably any lake, pond or stream that they can safely dip their bucket into - seriously.
Yea, I figured that, I'm asking what lake specifically they are using... Evergreen/Chatfield?

"A UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter with the Colorado Army National Guard’s 2nd Battalion, 135th General Support Aviation prepares to fill a 500-gallon water bucket in Strontia Springs Reservoir in the vicinity of Conifer, Colo., March 28, 2012. The 2-135th GSAB is operating under the Colorado governor’s executive order to assist the Colorado Department of Emergency Management and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department in fighting the Lower North Fork fire, which began March 26 in Jefferson County, Colo. The fire has given rise to the evacuation of more than 900 homes and is estimated to have covered more than 4,000 acres. (Army National Guard photo by Spc. Bethany Fehringer/RELEASED)"
