Ms. Castle discussed the impacts in Colorado of a call on the Colorado River. She discussed a conservation pilot project and discussed concerns that water that has been conserved for future use would not fulfil its intended use if there were to be a call on the Colorado River. Ms. Castle responded to questions from the committee.
