Light snow/rain continue to develop along northern El Paso County, as well as wind picking up in this location. This trend will continue to extend to the south throughout the afternoon hours. Light snow accumulations and poor visibility will be possible for a time this afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Blowing dust will be mostly likely on the Eastern Plains, where a Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect. Bottom-line, your Tuesday will feel (and look) a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
Colorado Attorney General Ken Salazar is urging cities to crack down on water wasters and find uniform ways to conserve.
The state's crippling drought prompted Salazar's suggestions to
the Colorado Municipal League.
The league, which represents about 260 communities, held a
workshop yesterday on water legislation.
Salazar suggested municipalities find new ways to enforce water
law, perhaps by forcing wasters to pay more. He also suggested
coordinated efforts to conserve.
He applauded part of House Bill 1001, which authorizes a three million dollar study of water storage needs.
