Vail Daily letter: Conservation important
I hope those interested in the water situation in Colorado who saw Ken Neubecker’s piece (April 4) read through to the end. He does a good job of questioning some of the proposals for the Colorado Water Plan which depend on the traditional “more diversions, engineered rivers and reservoirs.” Neubecker, who is executive director of the Western Rivers Institute, supports “greater conservation, efficiency and re-use of the limited water supply.” If Colorado population keeps growing as it has, and there’s no reason to think it won’t, and if climate change keeps happening, and there’s no reason to think it won’t, then every individual, every business, and every government entity needs to start conserving now. Let us hope the Colorado Water Plan supports this.
