—IN THE DISTRICT COURT IN AND FOR WATER DIVISION NO. 4—
STATE OF COLORADO
TO: ALL PERSONS INTERESTED IN WATER APPLICATIONS IN SAID WATER DIVISION NO. 4

Pursuant to C.R.S. 37-92-302, as amended, you are notified that the following is a resume of all applications filed in the Water Court during the month of November 2008.
The names, address of applicant, source of water, description of water right or conditional water right involved, and description of the ruling sought are as follows:
CASE NO. 2008CW139 (REF NO. 01CW198). Applicant: City of Gunnison, c/o Ken Coleman, City Manager, P. O. Box 239, Gunnison, CO 81230-0239. (Attorneys for Applicant: Timothy J. Beaton, Patricia M. DeChristopher, Moses, Wittemyer, Harrison and Woodruff, P.C., P. O. Box 1440, Boulder, CO 80306-1440, (303) 443-8782.) Application for Finding of Reasonable Diligence. Name of structure: O’Fallon Ditch. Legal description of the structure: Initial decreed point of diversion: East bank of the Gunnison River at a point whence the East quarter corner of Section 33, Township 51 North, Range 1 East of the N.M.P.M., bears North 85E East 1565 feet, Gunnison County, Colorado. Piloni Ditch headgate: Left bank of the Gunnison River at a point whence the Southwest corner of Section 24, Township 50 North, Range 1 West of the N.M.P.M., bears South 36E35’ West 1308 feet, Gunnison County, Colorado. Previous decrees: The O’Fallon Ditch water right was originally adjudicated in Civil Action No. 5289, by entry of a decree on June 20, 1957. The conditional water right was continued by finding of due diligence in Case No. 01CW198, by entry of a decree dated November 27, 2002. An alternate point of diversion for the O’Fallon Ditch was decreed on December 31, 1996 in Case No. 96CW056. Prior diligence findings were entered in Case Nos. 94CW180, 87CW138, 83CW13, W-153, W-755 and W-154. Source of water: Gunnison River. Date of initiation of appropriation: October 26, 1954. Amount: 10 cfs, CONDITIONAL. Use: Municipal purposes including, domestic, commercial, industrial, irrigation and fire prevention purposes. Outline of work and expenditures during the diligence period towards completion of appropriation and application of water to beneficial use: The alternate point of diversion for the O’Fallon Ditch decreed in Case No. 96CW56 (the Piloni Ditch headgate) would allow Gunnison to irrigate the Van Tuyl Ranch, which Gunnison operates as an irrigated hay meadow and well recharge area. Gunnison is currently engaged in discussions with Gunnison County, the other owner of Piloni Ditch water rights, to establish accounting and related mechanisms for both parties’ use of the Piloni Ditch. Gunnison has a pending change case (Case No. 07CW63) in Water Division No. 4 to transfer a portion of Gunnison Reservoir No. 4 to various small water storage sites, of which some percent will be used for future development on the Van Tuyl Ranch. Gunnison continues to make improvements to the well recharge area on the Van Tuyl Ranch that will be served by the O’Fallon Ditch diversions. Gunnison owns and operates the working Van Tuyl Ranch that achieves recharge by utilizing the ground as irrigated hay meadow. Additionally, during the diligence period, Gunnison incurred legal fees in an amount in excess of $61,000 related to filing statements of opposition and defense of Gunnison’s water rights against potential injury in Water Court, and to preparation and prosecution of Water Court applications to maintain Gunnison’s water rights. Name and address of owner of land upon which any new diversion structure or modification to any existing diversion structure is or will be constructed: Applicant. WHEREFORE, the City of Gunnison requests that the Water Court grant this application, find that applicant has exercised reasonable diligence, and continue the O’Fallon Ditch in the amount of 10 cfs. GUNNISON COUNTY.
YOU ARE FURTHER NOTIFIED THAT you have until the last day of January 2009, to file with the Water Clerk, in quadruplicate, a Verified Statement of Opposition setting forth facts as to why a certain application should not be granted or why it should be granted only in part or on certain conditions. A copy of such a Statement of Opposition must also be served upon the applicant or the applicant’s attorney and an affidavit of certificate of such service shall be filed with the Water Clerk, as prescribed by C.R.C.P. Rule 5. (Filing fee: $158.00; Forms may be obtained from the Water Clerk’s Office or on our website at www.courts.state.co.us). DARLEEN CAPPANNOKEEP, Water Clerk, Water Division 4, 1200 N. Grand Ave., Bin A, Montrose, CO 81401.

Location: The headgate of said ditch is located on the south bank of the Taylor River, a tributary of the Gunnison River, in the NE1/4 NW1/4 SW1/4 of Section 9, Township 15 South, Range 83 West, 6th P.M., at a point 1100 feet from the west section line and 2250 feet from the south section line. This location places the headgate on Crystal Creek’s property. C. Source: Taylor River, a tributary of the Gunnison River. D. Appropriation date: October 20, 1999. E. Amount: 60 c.f.s., conditional. F. Use: Piscatorial and recreational use in a trout fishery. G. Terms and conditions. Applicant’s conditional water right for the Summerville Ditch Enlargement was adjudicated in Case No. 99CW182, Water Division No. 4 subject to the conditions and limitations as set forth in ¶¶ 15(a)-(f) of that Ruling and Decree. Those conditions and limitations are incorporated here by this reference. Evidence of reasonable diligence: During the diligence period, the Applicant expended significant sums developing the conditional water right for the Summerville Ditch Enlargement. Applicant’s efforts to develop the conditional water right and apply the water to beneficial use during the diligence period support a finding of reasonable diligence. The application contains a detailed outline of the activities performed during the diligence period and is available for inspection and/or copying at the office of the Water Court. This is not intended to be all-inclusive and may be supplemented by additional evidence during any hearing in this matter. Water right made absolute: The conditional water right for the Summerville Ditch Enlargement was diverted in priority and applied to beneficial use in the amount of 56 c.f.s. for the decreed piscatorial and recreational purposes in accordance with the conditions and limitations set forth in ¶¶ 15(a)-(f) of the Ruling and Decree in Case No. 99CW182. A. Rate of diversion: On June 24, 2008, Applicant diverted and measured 60 c.f.s. at the headgate of the Summerville Ditch Enlargement. Of the amount diverted, 56 c.f.s. was diverted for piscatorial and recreational purposes in the Summerville Ditch Enlargement. The remaining 4 c.f.s. was applied to beneficial use for irrigation purposes pursuant to the water rights described in paragraph E below. During the remainder of the period from May 1 to September 30, 2008, diversions pursuant to the Summerville Ditch Enlargement water right did not exceed 35 c.f.s. During the period of October 1, 2007 to April 30, 2008, diversions pursuant to the Summerville Ditch Enlargement water right did not exceed 15 c.f.s. B. Satisfaction of Colorado Water Conservation Board instream flow right: On June 24, 2008, the minimum streamflow right adjudicated in Case No. 87CW257, Water Division No. 4, in the amount of 100 c.f.s. (5/1-9/30) was satisfied immediately below the headgate of the Summerville Ditch Enlargement. The USGS gage station on the Taylor River below Taylor Park Dam (Station 09109000) recorded a rate of flow of 619 c.f.s. on June 24, 2008. There are no significant diversions between the USGS gage station and the headgate of the Summerville Ditch Enlargement. Additional water is contributed to the Taylor River above the Summerville Ditch headgate from Lottis Creek. C. Diversion in accordance with Schedule A of Decree in Case No. 86CW203: Pursuant to paragraph 6 of the Schedule “A” Accounting Conditions attached to the decree in Case No. 86CW203, Water Division No. 4, “[o]utflows that occur from Taylor Park Reservoir that exceed patterns set forth in paragraph 22 of the Decree shall not be considered as a release from water stored under either UVWUA [irrigation priority] or Gunnison District water storage rights.” For the month of June, paragraph 22 of that Decree provides for an outflow from Taylor Park Reservoir of 500 c.f.s. On June 24, 2008, outflows from Taylor Park Reservoir were measured at the USGS gage station to be 619 c.f.s. D. Return of Water to Taylor Park River: As required by paragraph 5(e) of the decree in Case No. 99CW182, all the water diverted at the Summerville Ditch Enlargement, except for evaporation and transit losses and consumption by the surrounding vegetation incidental to carriage of water in the Ditch Enlargement, was returned to the Taylor River within Applicant’s property. E. Summerville Ditch Irrigation: Applicant’s diversion and beneficial use of the Summerville Ditch Enlargement for piscatorial and recreational use was “in addition to and not in substitution for the use of water under existing irrigation rights decreed to the Summerville Ditch and Summerville Ditch No. 2 under priority 265 in the amount of 1.25 c.f.s. (subject to the terms of a change decree in Case No. 79CW259), priority 454 in the amount of 6.75 c.f.s., and priority 655 in the amount of 1.5 c.f.s.” On June 24, 2008, 4 c.f.s. of the 60 c.f.s. diverted at the headgate of the Summerville Ditch Enlargement was used for irrigation purposes pursuant to the Applicant’s water rights in the Summerville Ditch and Summerville Ditch No. 2. Names and addresses of owners of land upon which any new diversion or storage structure or modification to any existing diversion or storage structure or existing storage pool will be constructed or upon which water is or will be stored: Applicant. WHEREFORE, the Applicant respectfully requests that this Court enter a decree making partially absolute the conditional water right decreed in Case No. 99CW182 for the Summerville Ditch Enlargement in the amount of 56 c.f.s. for piscatorial and recreational purposes. Applicant further requests that the Court enter a decree finding reasonable diligence for and continuing in full force and effect the conditional Summerville Ditch Enlargement water right, in any amounts not otherwise made absolute.
