There is hope, large reservoir denied on the San Juan


a few highlights...

kudos to Trout Unlimited.

The state Supreme Court has denied a large water right for a new reservoir above Pagosa Springs.

The reservoir, which would be called Dry Gulch Reservoir, would meet the future needs of fast-growing Archuleta County. Trout Unlimited appealed, saying the plan was based on unrealistic growth estimates.
In 2003, Pagosa's water engineer, Steve Harris, estimated Dry Gulch would need 12,000 acre-feet of storage to meet demands by 2040. But the next year, the district's board asked for a much larger water right.

In the trial, Harris testified the district was worried about a potential recreational water right for a Pagosa Springs kayak park.
Thats right bitches!

The court's water expert, Justice Gregory Hobbs, wrote the opinion.

Colorado water law does not allow "speculating," or claiming large amounts of water that might never be used. The system is set up to ensure the best use of the public's water, Hobbs wrote.
