All right, you got me, Caspian. I looked at your shortcut, knew it was fake, and yet some unresistable urge forced me to click on it nevertheless. I know the majority of water calls is based on agricultural needs but I have also read some impressive statistics regarding the quantities of water used by golf courses for watering (I don't think this counts as agriculture, does it?) but I don't know how this applies in Colorado. Do you know if golf courses are responsible for enough water use to be noticeable in the big scheme of things for the Eastern Slope?
Nice signature. That's new, isn't it?

Yeah golf courses do suck. What really pissed me off the most is that back in the worst of the drought a few years ago, every commercial building in the Denver area had a nice little sign staked in the grass that said they had an exemption from the watering restrictions. What the heck are restrictions for???? I mean seriously -- does grass at an office building or mall even get use? It was disgusting. As far as I'm concerned, down here, homeowners ought to get a front yard or a back, not both. Althought it ain't Vegas, this really isnt the best place for a million-plus people to live and it would be nice if we'd recognize it seriously.
I click on the funky links here too, occassionally they are real and it can be pretty funny. Don't know what happened to the signature. Maybe from when I deleted my cookies or something. Gotta fix.
i think people "make such a big deal" because that is western slope water being tunnelled to the other side of the divide [front range]. same with the roaring fork water going to the ark [co springs] at least we get to boat that. get your own water--leave ours alone! ha ha
