Last month the City of Aspen announced plans to buy about 60 acres of land in Woody Creek that would be used for a reservoir in the future. It’s part of the city’s work to explore options other than using water rights to build reservoirs on Castle and Maroon Creeks. Environment reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy has been reporting on the issue and talked with producer Christin Kay about the latest developments.
