As a long-time resident of Grand County, I’ve been disappointed by recent articles in the Boulder Daily Camera about the Moffat Firming Project permit and especially about the west slope implications of the project.

Coverage has been misleading in highlighting potential negative environmental impacts while ignoring the stream habitat improvements and flow benefits in the permit that will actually improve the health of the Upper Colorado River system.

It’s important for readers to get the total picture in weighing the environmental impacts of the project.
