Colorado shies from big fix as proliferating people seek more water - The Denver Post

Honestly, it's either something like this or drying up more ag. My guess is that the front range will go with drying up more ag. It's not like growth can be stopped. Even if conservation had that much of a water savings, the front range isn't going to be able to conserve it's way out of the water supply gap.

Let price determine market. Want a green lawn in Denver? Water bill will be 500/month. Want a new development? Pay for and find the water on your own accord. Development pads the pockets of others, not me. For me it brings pollution, traffic, congestion. The inability to go do anything on the weekend without fighting 20,000 other people on the highways. There are many things I can live without. Me subsidizing growth that I don't want and that only negatively affects me is a big one.
