Shoshone hydro plant, the most fascinating water right in the West

Good quick read on Shoshone and how it benefits us by providing boatable flows on the Colorado above the Roaring Fork confluence. There's also mention of how the endangered species benefit from the water right.

For those interested in Western water issues (and if you boat out here, you should be...), Fleck has a great blog and writes well.

And he's got this gal as his mascot!



Enjoy!
