Whitewater Bill Goes to Govenor

This was released on 9news today...

DENVER (AP) - A proposal that would limit the amount of water set aside for whitewater parks is on its way to Govenor Bill Owens' desk.

The bill was approved by the Senate today. Environmentalists supported it after changes were made to give state and county governments more flexibility in asking for water rights for parks used by kayakers.

Under current law, there were no limits on how much water can be set aside for whitewater parks. That has led some to worry that those rights could block future development by taking remaining water that's available in a river.

Last year, lawmakers killed a bill limiting all water parks to 350 cubic feet per second of water -- enough water to supply about 14-hundred families for a year.
