Decoupling, Colorado style

Bart Miller, Western Resources Advocates, on decoupling and Colorado’s push to close the gap between water supply and projected use:

If cities continue on the track they’ve been on the last 15 years, which is reducing water use per capita by about 1 percent per year, that’s going to save a large chunk of the 400,000 acre-feet, through urban conservation. So at some level, I would de-emphasize the importance of that gap, because there are several approaches that will make that gap shrink or disappear.
