Study on Colorado Front Range Water Availability

The Global Water forum has published an interested study on water availability in American cities. The short study's conclusions, found here, do not list Colorado cities among the most high risk cities for water shortages. The Denver area is at risk if we include only runoff water, the study notes, but when the cities storage facilities and alternative sources are considered, the risk of shortage is significantly lower. Among the 20 highest-risk cities, most tend to be in California or desert communities far from mountain water sources.
