Aurora contract/Pueblo Reservoir

Just one more note from me before I take off for the weekend:

For those of you interested in releases from Pueblo Reservoir to the Arkansas, I've got a public process for you.

Today we released a draft Environmental Assessment on a request the City of Aurora has to extend what has traditionally been temporary, 1-year agreements for them to store their water in Pueblo Reservoir in years that Pueblo doesn't fill up with Fryingpan-Arkansas project water.

They have requested a "Long Term" contract for up to 40-years to store and exchange their water using the federal system--which includes Pueblo Res. The storage and exchanges make it possible for them to move water rights they have in the Lower Ark up to the South Platte basin, where they can access them.

The Draft EA (prepared under the National Environmental Policy Act) is a public disclosure document of the studies we've done analyzing possible environmental impacts of this proposed long term contract.

We're accepting public comment on the Draft EA through November 9. And, I'll be hosting a public round table discussion of the Draft EA (and collecting comments) on October 16 in the main ballroom of the Occhiato Student Center at Colorado State University, Pueblo.

Anyway, I thought some of you might be interested. I don't think there will be any significant impact to the white water park in Pueblo, but I wanted y'all to know this was out there.

To see the draft EA, visit our website at:

We've got several NEPA processes underway, but the Aurora contract is the first listed in this table. The link to the draft (an Adobe document) is in the top right corner.

And, feel free to give me a holler, too, if ya need more info. You know my numbers!
