Colorado water agreement held up by disputes

GRAND JUNCTION – Colorado water providers say a dispute over two water resources is holding up an agreement that would resolve most of the issues that have strained relations between water providers on both sides of the Continental Divide.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel ( ), western Colorado water providers want an agreement on the operation of the Shoshone power generating station in Glenwood Canyon and another on the operations of Green Mountain Reservoir.

Six months ago, officials from the Western Slope and Denver announced they had a general agreement that would resolve most of the issues, but none of the backers have signed an agreement.
