We're glad to see the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has submitted an objection to the MAWC water right based on their concerns that the review analysis has been inadequate and impacts to their wells at the Creston National Fish Hatchery could be significant. They conducted their own modeling analysis with the alarming results showing that their wells could drop as much as 20' compared to DNRC's “worst case scenario” that wells in the vicinity of the hatchery would drop up to 4.5' over the next 5 years. We hope the USFWS objection will be taken under serious consideration and prompt a more thorough investigation of the potential impacts of the water right before a decision is made to grant it.
