Vail Daily letter: Homestake concerns

Rich Schnelle
Vail, CO, Colorado

With all the activity going on in the Homestake Creek area, we have to consider the two most likely reasons. The least likely but most troubling is the dam up there is unsafe and in danger of collapsing.

The most likely scenario, though, is a covert water grab is under way. Either way, the U.S. Forest Service and others need to immediately cease and desist their activities up there, follow the law and do their environmental analysis, and come clean with the people of Eagle County. We’d like the whole story, not just little snippets in the back of the Vail Daily.

If it is a water grab, let’s not put the infrastructure in place first and then debate it.
