Re: “One class of landowner would get special treatment under city’s stormwater fees

I have been saying for years the city has been approaching the legal issues all wrong. With the challenges the city has been facing with water availability this issue should be coupled with a fight to reinterpret the Water Law of the West.

Certainly first users have claim to the natural runoff. But any excess runoff should be claimed by the creators of that runoff. The City should claim its right to use that excess for its own purposes. That water should be captured and purified into the city water system or traded as irrigation water to downstream users in exchange for upstream water.

Such would provide a couple of benefits. It would help to alleviate water crises we have experienced. It also would tactically redirect the legal fight to being between downstream users and Pueblo, who is wishing to restrict that flow.
