DENVER – On May 29, Colorado Governor Bill Ritter signed into law House Bill 1141 – a new law which will require developers of projects that contain more than 50 units prove the development will have an adequate water supply.
According to Drew Peternell, director of Trout Unlimited’s Colorado Water Project, housing developments that are built without adequately addressing water supply, the cost to homeowners and local governments can be enormous.
