Conservation in the West Poll Colorado Press Release- February 10th, 2015

Excerpt from Colorado Report:

"Water is another issue about which Coloradans are concerned. Fully 82% view the low levels of water in rivers as a serious problem facing the state. As these very issues are debated here in development of a state water plan, voters continue to maintain that conservation is key. Three-quarters (74%) side with a conservation focus over a supply focus that diverts river water to more populous areas of the state."
