August 31, 2011--Everyone agrees: The Animas is resource worth preserving (Durango Herald)

With so many competing interests dependent on the Animas River, any successful efforts to clean it up and preserve it are going to require a lot of compromise. At some points, the complexity of the law, the depth of the bureaucracy and the passions of the opposing sides make reaching a consensus seem unattainably ambitious.


August 30, 2011--The Animas in a changed climate (Durango Herald)

Durango’s 2011 Water Efficiency Management Plan said that to avert possible shortages, Durango must decide by 2015 whether to raise water rates and impose conservation measures. The most shocking fact in the plan is that more than 20 percent of Durango’s water supply is unbilled and unaccounted for because of misplaced meters or unmetered buildings.
