The City of Aspen has conditional water rights to build reservoirs on Maroon and Castle Creeks.  They have not budged on their position that keeping those rights is necessary, even in the face of intense criticism from environmental groups and concerned citizens. 

But last month, the city of Aspen announced plans to buy 60 acres of land in Woody Creek that could potentially be used for a reservoir in the future.  How are the groups who oppose the reservoirs on Maroon and Castle Creeks reacting to this new development?  

Christin Kay talks with environment reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy about the details of the plan.
