Wake up, Grand County, the Front Range is trying to take our water for their lawns

To the Editor:

I was shocked to read the results of the http://www.skyhidailynews.com poll questioning whether readers had commented on the Windy Gap Project’s EIS. About 43.33 percent said they trusted Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District to watch out for our interests.

SAY WHAT? Hello, people! They want our water for green lawns on the Front Range.

Some 36.67 percent said they did not know enough about the issue to comment intelligently. Only 20 percent said they planned to make a comment and 0 percent said they had already commented.

Please find time to write a short e-mail to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s Will Tully (wtully@gp.usbr.gov). The environmental health of this county is at stake. Don’t allow the Front Range to rip off of our natural resources for frivolous uses.

A few minutes of your time could mean so much in terms of preserving this ecosystem for future generations to enjoy.
