Statement of plan for augmentation, covering all applicable matters under § 37-92-103(9), 302(1)(2) and 305(8), C.R.S.: a. According to the Division Engineer’s Office for Water Division 4, there has been no administration of water rights on the Gunnison River upstream of the Aspinall Unit, East River, and Cement Creek in the past that would have resulted in diversions by the Boyd Pond No. 1, Boyd Pond No. 2, Jordan Ditch No. 2 First Enlargement, the Jordan Ditch No. 2 First Enlargement alternate point of diversion or Boyd Ditch being curtailed. B. The total evaporation from Boyd Pond No. 1 is estimated to be 1.39 acre-feet. Total average augmentation releases from Boyd Pond No.1 are estimated to total 2.36 acre-feet for a total storage demand on Boyd Pond No. 1 of 3.75 acre-feet as reflected in column 6 of Table 2, of Exhibit 2. Included in the augmentation requirements are year-round depletions for the Jordan Ditch No. 2 First Enlargement, the Jordan Ditch No. 2 First Enlargement alternate point of diversion, Boyd Ditch, and Boyd Pond No. 2. Out of priority depletions by these structures for piscatorial, recreation, and irrigation uses, and pond evaporation will be augmented through releases of water made from the Boyd Pond No. 1 to the Cement Creek and East River. c. The Boyd Plan for Augmentation will be operated if a call is placed on Cement Creek or the East River that would cause diversions by Boyd Pond No. 2, Jordan Ditch No. 2 First Enlargement, the Jordan Ditch No. 2 First Enlargement alternate point of diversion, or Boyd Ditch to be curtailed. Depletions by Boyd Pond No. 2, Jordan Ditch No. 2 First Enlargement, the Jordan Ditch No. 2 First Enlargement alternate point of diversion, and the Boyd Ditch will be replaced by releases of water from Boyd Pond No. 1. Augmentation for calls by water rights downstream of Blue Mesa Reservoir will be provided through participation in the UGRWCD’s Aspinall Augmentation Plan. d. Comparison of the 3.75 acre-foot maximum storage demand in Boyd Pond No. 1 with the 6.0 acre-foot live storage capacity of Boyd Pond No. 1 indicates that sufficient storage capacity is available to carry out the purposes of the Boyd Plan for Augmentation. Name(s) and address(es) of owner(s) or reputed owners of the land upon which any new diversion or storage structure, or modification to any existing diversion or storage structure is or will be constructed or upon which water is or will be stored, including any modification to the existing storage pool: Applicant.

Kebler Wagon Trail Project
The U.S. Forest Service is seeking your input. The following trail project will be considered on National Forest System lands for 2009 or 2010 on the Gunnison National Forest, Paonia Ranger District.
“KEBLER WAGON TRAIL PROJECT”: The existing 4.2 mile segment of the Kebler Wagon Trail (NFST #606) currently provides a non-motorized travel route parallel to or near the existing motorized Kebler Pass Road (Gunnison County Road 12), from near the county gravel pit on the east to the Gunnison Ranger District/Paonia Ranger District boundary on the west. The trail is open to all non-motorized summer trail users including mountain bikes. The proposed project consists of continuing the Kebler Wagon Trail west onto the Paonia Ranger District to a point near the Gunnison County Road 12 bridge over Anthracite Creek. The trail segment proposed for 2009 or 2010 is a .75 mile long segment of trail which follows an old Kebler Pass road bed alignment down to the existing Gunnison County Road 12. An additional .6 miles of trail is also part of the proposal for future construction beyond the .75 segment if or when a trail bridge is constructed over Anthracite Creek. Total project length of the two segments is approximately 7,233 lineal feet of trail construction following an abandoned road alignment. The project if implemented can be built progressively between road segments. The project location is T14S, R87W, Sections 3 and 4. Maps of the project area are available at the Paonia or Gunnison Ranger District offices. The project is designed to provide a quality and safer non-motorized experience off of the very busy and popular Kebler Pass Road. (Gunnison County Road 12).
The Forest Service is scoping for specific issues or concerns on the above proposed trail project. Please reply to the Gunnison Ranger District office in writing by March 5, 2009. Send comments to Greg Austin, Gunnison Ranger District, 216 N. Colorado, Gunnison, CO 81230 or e-mail comments to gpaustin@fs.fed.us.
