One of the biggest unwritten stories in the Colorado River basin — the race is on to drain the Colorado River! Two days ago, the Utah House passed HCR22, covered in the Desert News here:
“The Utah House of Representatives on Tuesday passed HCR22, which makes clear to neighboring states and policymakers that Utah will someday develop its unused portion of the Colorado River.”
“There are other states that would like to have our water. They are looking for chinks in the armor. The intention of this is to make clear to the other states that we do intend to use our water,” State Rep. Brad Last said.
In fact, there are now TWENTY FOUR proposals to further drain the river, all listed on our website: http://savethecolorado.org/campaigns/fighting-irresponsible-water-projects/ Save The Colorado is the ONLY group tracking and fighting all of the projects.
