Consideration of water sharing recommendations

The Western States Water council, which consists of 18 western Governors water policy arm, will review new recommendations brought to them by western water leaders from the agriculture, environmental and urban interests.

CSU Colorado Water Institute will host the meeting and develop a report in response to a 2008 concern raised by western governors.

“While these strategies sound like good common sense, they all face sizable obstacles,” said Reagan Waskom, director of the Colorado Water Institute. “If we want to share water for the benefit of all, we need a lot more flexibility, all members of the group agreed.”
