To continue the conversation, CPR posed some of those suggestions and questions to Eklund.

Listener Anne Spear in Lafayette, Colo., asked if the state can get homeowners' associations to stop requiring lawns in certain developments.

And listener Daniel Packman of Boulder pointed out that agriculture takes up the vast majority of water use in Colorado. He argues that conservation in cities will only be a drop in the bucket to solving Colorado's looming water crisis.
