Protection of water rights for farmers and Ranchers

Support creation of adequate storage to capture and use water.

Farmers and ranchers are the heart of this district, so protecting water rights and water quality is critically important. We must ensure that we have good water for crops, as well as enough water to allow for economic growth for our communities.
It is critical that, as larger cities in the area are running out of water and looking east and south to meet their water needs, we secure our water needs for today and years to come, by creating adequate storage to capture and use water that will protect the rich history of our land and the gifts the land produces for us.
