    The Colorado Legislature has given final approval to a bill that could benefit the Fraser and Colorado rivers.

    The legislation would allow water rights owners to leave their water in a stream or river without the risk of losing it, through special circumstances, said Kirk Klancke, Winter Park Ranch Water & Sanitation District manager.
