Tipton Statement on Withdrawal of Groundwater Management Directive


WASHINGTON – June 22, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) issued this statement following the U.S. Forest Service’s official withdrawal of its proposed Groundwater Management Directive:

“It’s welcome news that the Forest Service has officially backed away from this ill-fated attempt to drastically expand control over groundwater and private water rights. This Directive would have been especially harmful to the countless farmers and ranchers who rely on access to their private water rights to produce the crops that feed our nation and earn a living. This is a win for all private water rights users, but short of a legislative solution such as the Water Rights Protection Act to provide permanent protections, we will continue to see similar attempts by the Administration to exert control over private water rights.”
