The state should be planning growth around water supplies rather than trying to move water to growth, Colorado Secretary of Agriculture John Salazar said Thursday. “Water should not be a limiting factor of growth,” Salazar told the Colorado Ag Water Summit Thursday. “If we build up instead of out, and invest in technology, water can be used and reused to infinity. We need to plan for the future around how our population uses water.”..
