Letter - Stop San Luis water plan

Posted

Enough of the San Luis water project. Stop it. Call this heinous idea Dead in the Water. Just what makes Douglas County (or at least one of the commissioners) think they are so special that they can take water from one of the poorest, primarily agricultural areas of the state? Even the attorney who specializes in water law and was hired to speak with Renewable Water Resources has said it’s not a good idea. By the way, according to Steve Leonhardt, there is “no unappropriated water” available in the valley. That alone sounds like the end of the road for this debacle. But wait! There’s more! RWR hasn’t formed an augmentation plan showing how they would avoid injury to other water rights. That, of course, would be required by law.

So stop it. Quit spending money on an attorney who has already expressed the opinion that this is not such a grand idea. Quit feeding the monsters who still think there is something to investigate. I see far too many people in this chain who look to make money off of this deal, if the counties involved were stupid enough to approve this.
