Ms. Claudette Konola accused me of needing a CMU water management class to understand water politics. Mr. Penry and Mr. Hickenlooper seem to have a pretty good handle on the issue to me.

What I don’t understand is why we allow so much of the Colorado River water to go to California, when they have a huge coastline and de-salinization technology is available to make use of that seawater? I have no sympathy for the plight of the California water shortage. They de-salinate sea water for potable water all the time in places like Dubai and Abu-Dhabi as well as other desert countries. California should do the same.

Let California deal with their own water issues. Start legislation to keep more Colorado River water here in Colorado so the farmers will have all they need and what little water that is needed for fracking will be a non-issue.
