Water & Sewer

Do you have the proper water rights?
If you have added a hot tub, rooms,bathrooms or if you irrigate your garden & lawns without obtaining additional augmented water rights, chances are you do not have proper water rights.  Below is information from both Troy Wineland, District 36/District 5 Blue River Water Commissioner and LeAnn Brandt from Vidler Water.  A "Guide to Colorado Well Permits, Water Rights, and Water Administration" is available below.
Residents have until July 1st to contact Troy Wineland about additional needed water rights.  Residents will then have until July 1, 2017 to secure the needed augmented water.  Anyone who does not contact Mr. Wineland by the July 1, 2016 date, will have your wells tagged by the State.  If you are in need of augmented water rights, please contact Troy Wineland at 970-355-4516 or via email at troy.wineland@state.co.us.
