From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):
Ken Weber, an anthropologist who lives in Pueblo, told the Lower Arkansas Valley Water Conservancy District board he plans to take a proposal to study the Super Ditch to the Arkansas Basin Roundtable soon. Otero County commissioners already have agreed to review the study…
“It would seek to document what happens over a three-year period,” Weber said, adding that impacts to participating farmers, nonparticipants, service industries and communities would be evaluated. “It would provide accountability and transparency.”[...]
Weber replied that his study proposes to measure actual impacts, rather than predict what those impacts would be. The Lower Ark’s studies actually call for this sort of evaluation, he added.
