As of this writing, 8/12/2019 we are happy to report that every homeowner has paid their tap fees to RSWD! Hooray! The three remaining undeveloped lots are being charged the ‘holding fee’ until they are occupied.
The Well Reports Committee is currently looking for an assistant for calendar year 2020. If you are interested in helping your community with gathering information about our wells for the state report, please contact Cathy Gunderson.
Here are the minutes from the last meeting: well reports mtg minutes 09182018
The 2019 Well Reports have been sent to the State Water Commissioner. Thank you for your cooperation in sending in your information!

|The oldest decree W-8568 was for the first 100 lots and allowed irrigation of only 1,300 square feet on each lot. 82CW203 amended the original plan to substitute the LFH well as a source of replacement for the earlier described Arapahoe well.|
|83CW32 just increased the amount of LFH water decreed for the well on the subdivision. Some of that water was deeded to the POA to be used in the augmentation plans.|
|The next decree 89CW068 increased the irrigated area allowed on each lot to up to 3,900 square feet, and allowed up to 4 horses on each lot if the irrigated area is a little smaller. These augmentation decrees were for wells in the Denver aquifer.|
|99CW198 was to define the available water under the subdivision from the Arapahoe wells, and to approve an augmentation plan for those wells, including wells on the open space parcels for the first time. It increased the irrigated area to 5,000 square feet if an Arapahoe well is used.|
