Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, the City Council and local taxpayers are on a mission to protect the environment and downstream water. Hard-hat workers had shovels in the ground this week, and taxpayer money was flowing for the cause.
Anyone who cares about clean water and Mother Earth will get out of the way and allow progress to continue.
Those with less pure motives will interfere.
Take, for example, state and federal authorities who are resolute in slowing this work. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment press forward with a vengeful, predatory lawsuit that threatens water quality and the environment.
