Water could derail north Colorado secession plans

GREELEY — Water is surfacing as a key issue in plans by Weld County commissioners to create a new state to allow northeast Colorado’s robust agriculture and oil and gas industries to thrive.

Counties in the proposed state of North Colorado would share water, the resource needed most by farmers, ranchers and petroleum companies.

According to the Greeley Tribune, Weld, Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick, Phillips, Washington, Yuma and Kit Carson counties have all expressed interest in the idea of forming their own state.
