Little Ditch. Big Deal.

Sep 19, 2016

Living off the grid in Colorado's vast San Luis Valley, Chuck and Barbara Tidd needed to find a source of energy to supplement their solar panels. Their solution to use a creek on their property to generate power led to a legal battle that went all the way to the Colorado Supreme Court — where they won. That decision worries some who say the Tidd’s new right could upend water law that goes back 150 years. Frani Halperin and Jamie Sudler of H2O Radio report.
