As a former Summit CO resident it seems much more logical to educate the public and enforce better water conservation on the front range as a long term solution to water issues. The BS we endured in Summit to supply water to the front range was at times comical.
Then to drive down to Denver and see irrigation during rain storms very irritating.
Draining a high country reservoir as its not an efficient means of water storage is logical. Put it lower in something deeper that has less evap issues.
The recreation lost sucks but that body of water should never have been there anyway.
Also good looking fish
Water rights can be bad down here too but at least it seems we are closer to the top of the food chain on our local rivers.
