On November 16, 2018, the Lower Arkansas Valley Super Ditch Company, Inc. and the City of Colorado Springs, acting through its enterprise, Colorado Springs Utilities, submitted a proposal to CWCB. The proposed Colorado Springs Utilities Pilot Project ("CS-U Pilot Project") will use water available from certain shares in the Catlin Canal Company, Fort Lyon Canal Company, and/or Rocky Ford High Line Canal Company from temporary municipal uses by Colorado Springs Utilities.
The CS-U Pilot Project Proposal requests that the CWCB select the CS-U Pilot Project pursuant to C.R.S. 37-60-115(8) and the CWCB's Criteria and Guidelines for the Fallowing-Leasing Pilot Program in Colorado.
All parties may submit comments on the CS-U Pilot Project Proposal to the CWCB within 30 days of receiving the proposal (December 16, 2018). The CWCB will not consider comments received after the 30th day.
