 Final Criteria and Guidelines for Fallowing-Leasing Criteria (January 2016)

 Board Approved Fallowing-Leasing Criteria (November 2013)

Catlin Pilot Project

The CWCB approved the Catlin Pilot Project during the January 26-27 CWCB meeting in the Denver Tech Center. The CWCB adopted one new term beyond what was included in the State Engineer's report for the project. The new term is "The terms and conditions set forth in the pilot project are based on the parties' current understanding of the Catlin Project and the information presented as part of the application process. All of the terms and conditions are the subject of negotiations and compromises, and shall not be relied upon as establishing any precedent in any other proceeding." The board memo and related documents are available below.
