From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):

“We have to increase the ability to store water in the Western United States,” Tipton told the Colorado Water Congress at its summer convention this week. In Colorado, it’s an issue that crosses party lines. This week Gov. John Hickenlooper sent a letter to President Barack Obama to tell him that more timely federal decisions are needed on storage projects such as Denver Water’s Gross Reservoir Expansion and the Northern Integrated Supply Project…

Tipton advocates timely, “common sense” decisions by federal agencies. Gardner said the federal government needs to be a partner in state decisions, but should not try to control the process.
