“the scenic nature and recreational uses of our rivers are as important to the West Slope as suburban development and service industry businesses are to the Front Range. They are not and should not be seen as second-class water rights, which Colorado can preserve the option of removing at the behest of Front Range indulgences.”
I agree. The Front Range should have to solve their own water shortages without diverting (stealing) any more water from it's native basin.
I have a feeling this topic is going to be heating up in the next couple years...
