Is destroying an entire ecosystem worth it for "SOME" people to see deeper into an already beautiful lake. The fact is that the good of the lake itself is being over looked. The August 2012 study eludes to the fact that more studies will need to be done to learn the effects of alternative pumping on the wildlife. But why was it not top priority?
I'm looking for someone, anyone from the "pro diversion" campaign to explain to us why life is not THE most important aspect of our lake. People don't come to stand on the shoreline and see how clear the water is, they come to experience the whole thing. Astonishing mirror images of Mt. Baldy reflecting on the lake in the morning and the osprey diving in for a meal for their young. Stop and think what is important to the MAJORITY of people who live in and visit our town.
I'm not an expert, I don't have all the answers but don't we owe it to Grand Lake to find the betters ways to increase some clarity while saving our fish! Please enlighten me!
