Nothing like seeing it from the air!
"I've been a student of water use, storage, and transportation for decades, but have never before seen the collection and diversion systems from the air (other than a glimpse of a big reservoir from a commercial jet)," remarked Jennifer Pitt of the Environmental Defense Fund. Pitt and David Owen, a reporter from The New Yorker recently flew with LightHawk over the Colorado Rockies.
LightHawk partnered with EDF and The New Yorker to increase understanding of the impacts of water imports to population centers in Colorado's front range. The flight also helped illuminate the risks to agriculture and watersheds from increasing urban water demand.
