Trout Unlimited and others contend Colorado’s water needs can be met through 2050 with smaller water projects, conservation, reusing water, paying farmers to fallow their land and allowing cities to use their water rights during severe droughts.

The groups also say there are cheaper options for providing water to growing Front Range populations than looking to the Flaming Gorge or, specifically, Million’s plan for a 578-mile pipeline, three reservoirs and 16 natural gas-fired pumps.
