State lawmakers representing Western Slope constituents are viewing a nearly complete Colorado water plan with a mix of hope and fear. Eight of them addressed the Colorado Basin Roundtable Monday, with their thoughts not surprisingly mirroring those expressed by roundtable members and the Western Slope more broadly regarding the plan.
Much of the water storage contemplated in the Colorado water plan already is under study, said the head of the Colorado Water Conservation Board. “There are all sorts of good reasons to think we can close the gap” between current supplies and the demands expected by 2050, said James Eklund, executive director of the CWCB, which has a Dec.

The soon-to-be completed first version of the Colorado water plan should reject a new diversion of water from the Western Slope to the Front Range, according to a group of Western Slope stakeholders. Citizens for West Slope Water on Tuesday delivered a petition to Gov.
