From today's Denver Post: "The Colorado Water Conservation Board grappled Monday with rewriting rules for cities and towns seeking water rights to build kayak courses. But after five hours, commissioners voted to continue the public hearing at their November meeting.

"The Colorado Supreme Court has held that municipalities can claim, capture and control a reasonable portion of a river to provide whitewater recreation when enough water is available. But defining what is "reasonable" and available has proved difficult.

"The contentious issue has pitted thirsty farmers, developers and growing cities against tourism interests and towns eager to develop whitewater recreation.

"The Colorado Water Conservation Board is stuck in the middle, having been charged by the state legislature to set down the procedures by which municipalities apply for these water rights."
