Now read that EIS and get your comments in. A nice point to make is how by taking away the cleansing, healthy high flows you F*CK up the Poudre through town and it's fragile ecosystem. Another point, made recently by a fellow buzzard, is that if the reservoir had been built in 2000, it would still be sitting empty.
If we spent half of the money this project will take on conservation efforts, such as reimbursement/matching/incentives for buying low flow fixtures or xerascaping, we could save way more water than this reservoir would ever provide. We could also become a leader in the West and show our neighbors how it's done!
