Letter: Eagle River efforts paying off
Vail CO, Colorado
Thanks very much for the editorial stance advocating a higher water quality standard for the Eagle River. What a shot in the arm for the Watershed Council’s effort to convince a rather conservative Water Quality Commission of same June 7!
Thanks also, Matt Terrell, for your continued high quality coverage of this and other technical issues relating to achieving again an Eagle River (and Gore Creek) we can be proud of.
I do hope our cool weather allows a continuing slow run-off so that we have no wild cards, like the blow out of 100 beaver dams or similar, to further hinder these efforts. While gardening mine and the Vail’s strip along Bighorn Road this afternoon I was watched warily by a sandpiper (a shorebird!) who is enjoying the ample seasonal flow through the culverts in my yard, ignoring passing cars and cyclists. It’s another indicator of how adaptive wildlife can be and how we share space with wildlife whether we recognize it or not.
