Both Lakes are important!
I read this story after I had finishes reading the Grand Lake Water Clarity Technical Review and Work Plan released by the Bureau of Reclamation. Yes, why would the beauty and health of one lake be more important than the other. The County and some Town officials stand by their belief that the clarity of Grand Lake is responsible for tourism. Really?!... they want people to drive by slimy green Shadow Mountain (which is the first lake visitors see) and come done the hill into Grand Lake to see the natural lake that has almost no public access.
I'm all for a healthy lake...which is what we already have! So, why spend millions of dollars so that some people can say the lake is clear?!!! Give us a real reason!
This report finally addresses the devastating impact that changing flows in Grand Lake will have on aquatic life. Lets keep whats important in perspective.
