Water rights still under review
Regarding the May 21 article about the ERBM Rec District Board meeting held May 19, the board has received the dewatering permit from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment related to the construction of the pond at Circle Park, not the final water rights for augmentation, according to ERBM Executive Director Sean VonRoenn. In Colorado, a dewatering permit may be required when groundwater is encountered during construction activities where the groundwater or commingled water needs to be discharged to surface water or back to the ground. VonRoenn said the application for the final water right is still in the review process.
In the caption on the photo about the Dance Without Wolves fundraiser last week, all involved parties were not named. The event was a joint effort between Rio Blanco Stockgrowers, Rio Blanco Farm Bureau, and Rio Blanco Woolgrowers along with a number of other organizations/individuals. (Online updated.)
