EPA wants further review of water-diversion project to protect Colorado River

Jeez, it isn’t rocket science. Diverting more of nature’s water from western Colorado to quench the everlasting thirst of exurbia is a no-winner. “Federal authorities say a long-planned project to divert more western Colorado water to growing Front Range suburbs may cause ‘significant degradation’ of already deteriorating ecosystems along the upper Colorado River,” the Denver Post reported today. The sprawl I saw spreading across former prairie just east of the original Colorado Springs last fall is absurd. One can’t hardly move there without driving a motor vehicle.
