Kansas will be breathing down Colorado's back again if the pumping up to The Springs affects river flow.

Colorado is a beautiful state, but it's on the fast track to ruin that with the exploding population growth on top of the tourism.
Pueblo had no choice. People assume it was Pueblo's water because it is stored in our county but it was not. Colorado Springs was going to get the water by letting them take it through Pueblo county it gave Pueblo the upper hand in the 1041 permit which is why they got the major deal with the Springs.

Water could help southern Colorado especially Pueblo in the next 80 years. We have enough water for a city of 500,000 people if we don't buy anymore and they are always looking. I sit in economic meetings and that is one of the strengths brought up.

People just need to use less water and use the current water more efficiently. We don't live in England grass lawns are a incredible waste and need to be banned.

Sorry when the whole state makes fun of Pueblo and asks why would I want to live here then asks us for our extra water "for the greater good" my response could not be posted here. Just saying!

Livestock use more water than people.
I was reading this thread because I may want to move to Colorado one day. Population growth does create problems, but water wouldn't be as much of an issue if we didn't need so much livestock.

Go vegan, everybody! Why have feedlots in Colorado jammed with methane producing cows when we can have jammed together, high density townhouse neighborhoods that reach all the way to Limon? It's the new Colorado dream - a cute 400 sq ft apartment with walls so thin, you can bond with all your neighbors (whether they produce methane or not.)
