Faces in the Crowd: The Lawyer

David Robbins, a top Colorado water attorney, takes questions during a meeting about the federal proposals to protect the Lower Dolores River below McPhee dam. Robbins has completed a legal review on how federal actions would impact local water rights. Some possible designations on the Lower Dolores river include a wilderness area in Slick Rock Canyon, a national conservation area from the dam to Bedrock, a national wild and scenic river, or a national monument designated by President Barack Obama. Robbins concludes an NCA is a good fit for the river because the legislative process allows for a custom conservation plan decided on locally.
