JWP's predictions are coming to fruition

Big Thompson Project faces historic low water quota - The Denver Post

Powell's plan for the West was small, sustainable communities that were divided and managed by watershed boundaries. Not political boundaries.

If this drought continues lawns will be a joke, as will agriculture West of the 100th meridian.

I'm reading Dam Nation by Stephen Grace right now, and this new report about the CBT project along with others about our impending drought are unsettling to say the least.

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too. - Voltaire

Yeah, it's pretty ridiculous how the unmanaged, unplanned growth machine has panned out here in the west. People like to tout the successes of individual free market capitalism, but there's no long term vision in that.

Now we've painted ourselves into a corner, and virtually the entire west is thirsty for water. Our communities depend on water and fight over it. Richer cities steal water (through political avenues) from poorer regions (I'm looking at you, Patricia Mulray). It won't ever get better.
