LETTER: Way to go on water right

To Mayor McKinney and members of the Glenwood Springs City Council:

We would like to commend you for your thoughtful and proactive approach to securing a Recreation In-Channel Diversion (RICD) water right for the city of Glenwood Springs.

This action will secure the necessary long-term water right to ensure adequate flows through the Glenwood Whitewater Park “G-Wave.” This amazing community amenity and investment is yet another remarkable community attribute that keeps Glenwood Springs at the forefront of outdoor recreation. The G-Wave is now known to whitewater enthusiasts and spectators from across the U.S. and other nations as one of the premier waterpark waves in the country.

No one fathomed when the wave was built that interest in this park would come from surfers, standup paddlers, boogie boarders, tubers, and Canada geese in addition to the usual kayakers and rafters. The list continues to grow. We thank you and your staff for your farsightedness, financial contribution and execution of this amazing amenity that incorporates one of Glenwood’s finest natural attributes. Excellent job.

With great appreciation and wishing you the happiest of holidays,

The Farrar family

Cathie, Davis, Matt and Hanna
