Next month – June 7 to be exact – there will be a water-related meeting in Salida that could be kind of historic if there’s a genuine effort to make it so. It’ll be a meeting of the Gunnison Basin Roundtable and the Arkansas Basin Roundtable. The purpose of the meeting is to see whether it’s possible to cut through the B.S. shielding a couple Colorado Water Cliches.
Cliche One: Urban growth just can’t be stopped, so it has to be accommodated.
Cliche Two: There has to be at least half a million acre-feet of Colorado River Water left for Colorado to develop.
