What is Orr’s compact alternative?
Tim Orr continues his attack on the compact but what is his alternative (VJ June 26)? I admit that “litigation fear” is a major factor that eventually led me to support the compact in 2015. And the more I have learned about MT water court adjudication risks and costs, the more I am convinced that the compact provides much greater confidence that my wife and I will continue to have access to irrigation water for our farm and well water for our home.
Orr, and other opponents of the compact, should explain, in writing, why water court adjudication would provide a better outcome than the compact.
