—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 August 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:
AMENDED/CORRECTED:
CASE NO. 07CW116 Applicant: Murdie Homeowners Association/David Vanderhoofven, 6976 Robb Street, Arvada, CO 80004.  Amended Application for Ground Water Right, Surface Water Right, Storage Right, and Approval for Plan for Augmentation.  Background:  The Murdie Subdivision is situated in the Taylor Park area at an elevation of approximately 9580 feet, more specifically located in the NE1/4 of the NE1/4, Section 22, T14S, R82W, 6th PM Gunnison County, CO.  The Murdie Subdivision was originally platted by its developers in 1967 containing a total of 42 individual lots limited to 41 individual dwellings.  The Murdie Subdivision has historically been a seasonal use property with vacation cabins until recent years where a portion of lot owners have chosen to reside or vacation there on a year round basis.  It has derived its water supply from the Multhup Pipeline, Priority no. 657, adjudication date of October 28, 1965, case no. W-73, with an appropriation date of July 15, 1964.  The pipeline is decreed for the amount of 0.08 c.f.s. for stock and domestic purposes.  The Multhup Pipeline is located from whence the W1/4 corner of Section 23, T14S, R82W, 6th PM bears North 8°07” West, a distance of 2914.7 feet. (367890, 4296672).  The Multhup Pipeline, Priority no. 657 in the amount of 0.08 c.f.s., consists of a combination of a two and three in pipeline running a distance, from its point of diversion to the Murdie Subdivision storage tank, (absolute decree for the storage of 0.0614 acre-feet, case no. 85CW220), approximately 1 mile.  The pipeline drops down from its point of diversion to a point on Willow Creek where it supports a termination point with a shut-off valve and can be released directly into Willow Creek when not in use by the subdivision.  The water is turned on in May, depending on weather conditions, to serve the subdivision and shut off in mid October.  The operation of the pipeline to the subdivision is controlled by climatic conditions based on the high elevation of the pipeline and subdivision.  The infrastructure located within the Murdie Subdivision is placed at an approximate depth of 1.5 feet where operation of the water system is not possible due to the frost level, which exists in the range of 6 to 8 feet below ground surface.  Several homeowners who reside or vacation there on a year round basin have opted to drill individual wells based on the Pre. ’72 status of the Murdie Subdivision as no other water source is available during winter months.  The applicants are seeking a plan of augmentation for the purpose of drilling a community well to serve the subdivision replacing depletions from the Murdie Pond.  Water from the Multhup Pipeline was recently cited by the State Department of Health as being unsafe for human consumption and the Murdie H.O.A. is required to remedy the situation.  After detailed research, and considering the condition and length of the pipeline, the association made the decision to drill a well and operate the water system with the same infrastructure that is currently in place within the subdivision. The applicants acknowledge the need for a year round augmentation plan for future purposes, however, for now and for an indefinite time in the future, the subdivision will only be able to use the well during the same time frame as the Multhup Pipeline.  Given this, the applicants wish to keep the option open to allow for homeowners who choose to use the cabins during the winter months to have the ability to apply for and obtain an individual on-lot well.  Owner of land on which the well will be located:  The Murdie Well will be located on Lot 8, Blk, 3 of the Murdie Subdivision.  Owner is identified as Clarence D. Taylor ET AL, 202 Broken Arrow Dr., Sun City West, AZ 85375.  Owner has been notified by the “jdf290 1/06, Certificate of Notice” within 10 days after filing the application according to statute.  Application for a Ground Water Right: Murdie Well – NE1/4NE1/4 of Section 22, T14S, R82W, 6th PM.  100 feet from the north section line and 100 feet from the east section line.  Source:  Willow Creek, tributary to the Taylor River, tributary to the Gunnison River.  Appropriation Date:  08/31/2007.  Amount Claimed:  20 g.p.m or 0.044 cfs conditional and an annual appropriation not to exceed 16.08 acre-feet for use in up to 41 single-family dwellings most of which are used on a seasonal basis, and there exists 24 valid wells or well permits in place at present.  Application for Storage Right:  Murdie Pond – SW1/4NE1/4 of Section 22, T14S, R82W, 6th PM.  2,550 feet from the north section line and 1,382 feet from the east section line.  Source: Murdie Pond will be filled in priority by the Multhup Pipeline, Priority no. 657, adjudication date of October 28, 1965, case no. W-73, with an appropriation date of July 15, 1964.  The pipeline is decreed for the amount of 0.08 c.f.s. for stock and domestic purposes.  The Multhup Pipeline is located from whence the W1/4 corner of Section 23, T14S, R82W, 6th PM, bears North 8°07” West a distance of 2914.7 feet.  The Multhup Pipeline is tributary to Willow Creek, tributary to Taylor River, tributary to the Gunnison River.  Appropriation Date:  06/10/2008.  Amount Claimed:  3.829 acre-feet conditional for augmentation purposes for the Murdie Well. Application for Surface Water Right Adding New Uses on the Existing Multhup Pipeline:  Multhup Pipeline, Priority no. 657, adjudication date of October 28, 1965, case no. W-73. With an appropriation date of July 15, 1964.  The pipeline is decreed for the amount of 0.08 c.f.s. for stock and domestic purposes.  The Multhup Pipeline is located from whence the W1/4 corner of Section 23, T14S, R82W, 6th PM, bears North 8°07”, West a distance of 2914.7 feet.  Applicant seeks to add new conditional and absolute uses to the Multhup Pipeline, however, does not seek to enlarge the existing pipeline.  Source:  The Multhup Pipeline is tributary to Willow Creek, tributary to Taylor River tributary, to the Gunnison River.  Use:  Applicant seeks a conditional decree to fill the Murdie Pond in priority in addition to the existing domestic and stock of original decree in the amount of 0.08 c.f.s.  Applicant does not seek to increase the amount of the existing decree.  Appropriation Date:  06/10/2008.  Adjudication Date: 12/31/2008.  Applicant seeks an absolute decree for the irrigation to water up to 4 acres of lawn and garden within the subdivision.  A portion of the lot owners have historically used the Multhup Pipeline, as evidenced by the association’s minutes, to irrigate their lawns.  Date of Appropriation:  12/31/1986.  Adjudication Date:  12/31/2008.  Applicant seeks an absolute decree for fire protection. Date of Appropriation:  06/10/2008.  Adjudication Date:  12/31/2008.  Application for Approval of Plan for Augmentation:  Name of Water Rights to be Augmented:  This Plan of Augmentation will augment for all otherwise out-of-priority depletions from the Murdie Well and evaporative loss from the Murdie Pond.  Plan Assumptions and Source Data:  Applicant has made the following assumptions in the development of his plan for augmentation, which are based upon a report, included and made part of this application.  The demand for each residence is estimated to be 100 gallons per day (gpd) per person for a three and one-half person household.  The in-house demand for each has been calculated to average 0.033 acre-feet per month and total 0.40 acre-feet per year.  The total demand for 41 residences will be 1.34 acre-feet per month or 16.08 acre-feet per year.  Wastewater for dwellings is or will be treated by individual Disposal systems (ISDS).  In-house depletions are estimated to be 10% of demand and have been calculated to average 0.134 acre-feet per month and a total 1.608 acre-feet per year for the 41 residential lots.  Total Water Depletions from the Murdie Well have been calculated to be 1.608 acre-feet per year.  Note that these are conservative calculations as the proposed Murdie Well will only operate from May through mid October and several lot owners have individual household-use only wells already in place.  Applicant has sent to each lot and/or well owner within 600 feet, notice of its intent to file subject plan for augmentation.  Copies of these notices, attached Exhibit “A” are attached and on file with the Water Court. Potential Call.  Applicant realizes that calls upon Applicant’s diversions might arise on any stream reaches downstream of Applicant’s diversions.   Statement of Plan for Augmentation.  Augmentation for the Murdie Well serving domestic use for the 41 residential dwellings on the applicant’s property will be provided for by releases from the Murdie Pond decreed for a storage amount of 3.829 acre-feet with an appropriation date of June 10, 2008.  A piped outlet directly into Willow Creek by way of an existing channel will make releases from the Murdie Pond available on a year round basis as needed for any senior calls downstream.  The total consumptive use for the domestic use has been calculated to be 16.08 acre-feet for their total depletions, and 1.792 acre-feet for year round evaporative loss of the Murdie Pond, and 0.17 (5%) acre-feet in transit loss from the Murdie Pond outlet to Willow Creek, resulting in total annual depletions of 3.569 acre-feet.  The applicant acknowledges that augmentation water will be solely for applicant’s use.  Applicant has entered into a contract with the Upper Gunnison Water Conservancy District to purchase two acre-feet of water for out of priority depletions in the event of a Gunnison Tunnel call or a Redlands Power Canal call.

Town gives money to advertise wedding garden

The Mountain Garden in Mt. Crested Butte did not receive as much use this year as in previous summers, so the town has agreed to contribute funds to help advertise the garden for wedding ceremonies. The Mountain Garden, or Wedding Garden as it is sometimes called, is directly behind Town Hall adjacent to Ted Scheske Park in Mt. Crested Butte. The garden was created in 2003 as part of the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival, and ever since has been frequently used for wedding receptions and other private parties.

Outline of Work Performed and Actions Taken Toward Completion of the Appropriation and Application of the Water to a Beneficial Use as Conditionally Decreed. A. Description of the Lucky Jack Mine Project.  U.S. Energy Corp. (“U.S. Energy” or “Applicant”), a Wyoming corporation, owns the Lucky Jack Mine, formerly known as the Mount Emmons Mine, and before that known as the Keystone Mine (the “Mine”).  The Mine is located approximately three miles north and west of the Town of Crested Butte on Kebler Pass Road, in Gunnison County, Colorado.  The property contains one of the largest, undeveloped molybdenum ore bodies known in the world.  Molybdenum is used as a steel strengthener, as well as in a variety of other items such lubricants, catalysts, and flame retardants.  As molybdenum reserves at currently developed sites are depleted, development of the Lucky Jack Mine is critical to meet the increasing market demand for molybdenum.  Development of the Mine is a lengthy and complex process that involves annual maintenance of unpatented claims; preparation of environmental studies and impact statements; development, preparation and agency approval of a plan of operations; filing of applications for several permits; obtaining various other authorizations and approvals from federal, state and local agencies; and design and construction of facilities related to the Mine and water rights.  Water is a crucial resource for the molybdenum mining and milling process, and appropriation of these conditional water rights was an initial step in the overall development of the project.  At the Mine, water is necessary for all industrial purposes associated with mining and milling molybdenum at the Mine, including but not limited to, dust suppression; operation of drills; mining, grinding, and processing of ore; transportation of tailings; evaporation replacement; backfilling of the mine to prevent subsidence; cooling; and fire suppression.  In addition, water is necessary for domestic use and lawn and park irrigation at mine and mill facilities.  The decreed conditional water rights that are the subject of this Application for Finding of Reasonable Diligence for Conditional Water Rights (“Application”) consist of a comprehensive system of water diversion and storage facilities that will be used for development and operation of the mine and related facilities. B. Procedural and Transactional History of Conditional Water Rights. On December 31, 1996, the former owner of the Mine, Mt. Emmons Mining Company (“MEMCO”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cyprus Climax Metals Company and later of Phelps Dodge Corporation, filed an Application for Conditional Water Rights in Case No. 96CW311 in Water Division No. 4, and filed amended Applications on February 2, 1998 and September 30, 1998.  MEMCO’s Application, as amended, claimed direct flow water rights from the Slate River and Carbon Creek for use in the  molybdenum mine and mill as well as for storage.  MEMCO’s Application also claimed 1,000 acre-foot storage rights each in Carbon Creek Reservoir, Mill Water Reservoir, and Elk Creek Reservoir. Following a trial before the Water Court for Water Division No. 4, and the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision in Mount Emmons Mining Co. v. Town of Crested Butte, 40 P.3d 1255 (Colo. 2002), the Water Court for Water Division No. 4 entered a Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, Judgment and Decree (“Final Decree”) on July 25, 2002, awarding the conditional direct flow and storage rights claimed in MEMCO’s Application. These decreed conditional water rights, set forth in Section 3 above, are the subject of this Application filed by U.S. Energy. The Final Decree contained “reality check” provisions that require that: (1) unless the Applicant can prove by a preponderance of evidence that there is a compelling justification otherwise, the conditional water rights decreed shall be cancelled twenty-five (25) years from the date of entry of the decree if Applicant has not perfected a portion of those water rights by applying water to beneficial use in accordance with the decree; and (2) the plan of operations for the Mine and applications for all necessary special use permits and rights of way for the water facilities associated with the conditional water rights must be filed with the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) within six years of entry of the Final Decree (i.e., by July 25, 2008) or within six years after final determination of the pending patent applications (First-Half Mineral Entry Final Certificate Serial Number CMC-54557), whichever is later. Final determination of the pending patent applications occurred on April 30, 2007, when the United States Supreme Court denied certiorari to legal challenges brought against the BLM’s issuance of the mineral patents.  High Country Citizens Alliance v. Clarke, 127 S. Ct. 2134 (2007). Therefore, to satisfy these reality check terms and conditions, some portion of the conditional water rights must be applied to a beneficial use by July 25, 2027, and the plan of operations and applications for special use permits and rights of way must be filed by April 30, 2013. Following extensive litigation between Phelps Dodge and U.S. Energy concerning the Mine and related properties, which hindered development of the Mine and the conditional water rights, MEMCO conveyed to U.S. Energy and Crested Corp. on February 28, 2006, all its rights, title and interests in the Mine and in the conditional water rights decreed in Case No. 96CW311. U.S. Energy and Crested Corp. entered into an Exploration, Development and Mine Operating Agreement (“Operating Agreement”) with Kobex Resources Ltd. (“Kobex”) on April 3, 2007 for exploration, development and operation of the Mine.  U.S. Energy merged with Crested Corp. on November 27, 2007.  Kobex terminated the Operating Agreement on March 31, 2008, and U.S. Energy is diligently pursuing a new partner for continued exploration and development, and operation of the Mine. C. Work Performed and Actions Taken Toward Completion of Appropriation.  The following work has been performed and actions taken during the diligence period toward completion of appropriation of the decreed conditional water rights: (1) Retained and paid consultants to collect and review hydrology data; develop daily stream flow records, water balance models and low-flow frequency analyses; and conduct technical assessments of Carbon Creek, Coal Creek, Elk Creek and Slate River, including seasonal variability, drought and flow conditions, instream flows, and diversions by other water rights holders. (2) Retained and paid consultants to evaluate the design, construction and operation of the water diversion, transportation and storage facilities, including technical assessment of the reservoir sites, conceptual design studies, identification of geotechnical investigation elements, examination of capital costs, and related matters. (3) Retained and paid consultants to perform environmental studies related to the water transportation and storage facilities. (4) Retained and paid consultants to develop a monitoring plan for determining baseline hydrologic conditions, including water quality and water flows in surface water, groundwater, springs and wetlands in the vicinity of the Lucky Jack Project. (5) Retained and paid consultant to prepare an application for a Clean Water Act § 404 permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to construct gauging stations on Carbon Creek and Elk Creek. (6) Initiated consultation with the Colorado Water Conservation Board (“CWCB”) and are engaged in ongoing discussions with CWCB staff to identify issues concerning Instream Flow Rights held by CWCB on Coal Creek and to discuss mitigation requirements under the Final Decree and the process and procedures for development, preparation, and approval of a Request for Inundation concerning the Carbon Creek Reservoir. (7) Paid for legal and consulting services necessary to protect the decreed conditional water rights from water rights applications filed in several Water Division 4 matters, including but not limited to Case No. 02CW63, Case No. 99CW267, Case No. 01CW05, and Case Nos. 03CW33, 03CW34, 03CW35, 03CW36 and 03CW37. (8) Paid for legal and consulting services necessary to obtain and defend the mineral patents issued by BLM on April 2, 2004 (First-Half Mineral Entry Final Certificate Serial Number CMC-54557) from legal challenges brought by multiple parties in the federal District Court for the District of Colorado, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court, which denied certiorari on April 30, 2007 to effectively end all such legal challenges to BLM’s decision to issue the mineral patents, granting fee title to the Mine. (9) Filed annual assessments on unpatented mine and millsite claims held by U.S. Energy with BLM. (10) Paid for legal and consulting services necessary to file an application for renewal of the Discharge Permit (CDPS Permit No. CO-0035394) for the Lucky Jack Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant (“WWTP”) in 2005.  Such services included meetings with Colorado Water Quality Control Division (“WCQD”) Permitting Section staff, reviewing and providing comments on draft versions of the permit, and performing sampling and analysis of effluent discharges and ambient water quality. (11) Retained and paid consultants to conduct work and activities necessary for development and operation of the Mine, including performing property surveys and geological and geotechnical studies; conducting underground rehabilitation, exploration and water flow management activities; operating the Lucky Jack WWTP; evaluating federal, state and local permit requirements; examining wildlife and other environmental issues; and developing a plan of operations. (12) Retained and paid consultants to evaluate the design, construction and  operation of the tailings storage facility, including technical assessment of tailings storage and mill sites, conceptual design studies, identification of geotechnical investigation elements, and examination of capital costs. (13) Submitted an application for a Baseline Study for a plan of operations and initiated consultation with the U.S. Forest Service to enter a Memorandum of Understanding governing preparation of an environmental analysis for the Baseline Study. (14) Made substantial expenditures on work and activities related to development of the conditional water rights, and on designing, engineering, surveying, testing and permitting activities related to the Mine and associated facilities. The foregoing and related activities demonstrate reasonable diligence in the development of the subject conditional water rights in compliance with § 37-92-301, C.R.S. (2007).  5.  Names and Addresses of Owners or Reputed Owners of Land Upon Which New Diversion and Storage Structures Will Be Constructed or Upon Which Water Will Be Stored.  The water diversion structures, reservoirs and related transportation structures and facilities will be constructed on land owned by U.S. Energy Corp., as well as on land owned by the following entities: A. United States Forest Service, Gunnison National Forest Office, 2250 Highway 50, Delta, CO 81416, B. United States Bureau of Land Management, Colorado State Office, 2850 Youngfield St., Lakewood, CO 80215. WHEREFORE, U.S. Energy requests that the Court enter a finding that U.S. Energy’s conditional water rights, as described more fully above, shall continue in full force and effect due to U.S. Energy’s demonstration of reasonable diligence in pursuing the perfection of such rights.  The Application on file with the Water Court contains a detailed outline of the work performed during the diligence period.  GUNNISON COUNTY.

1.  Name of Structure:  HCL Spring Enlargement No. 1.  2.  Legal Description of Point of Diversion:    In the NW1/4 SE1/4, Section 2, Township 11 South, Range 90 West, 6th P.M. approximately 1,500 feet from the east section line of said Section 2, and 1,700 feet from the south section line of said Section 2. (See attached Figure 1 Map).   3. Source:  Natural seeps and springs tributary to Henderson Creek, tributary to East Muddy Creek, tributary to the North Fork of the Gunnison River.  4.  Date of Initiation of Appropriation:  May 1, 1996.   5.  Amount Claimed:  0.75 cfs, absolute.  6.  Uses: Diversion to storage for fish propagation, piscatorial, recreational and augmentation purposes, and for the fill and refill of the Applicant’s water storage rights in the  HCL Pond A, HCL Pond B, HCL Pond C, HCL Cascades, and HCL Pond D decreed in Case No. 04CW201.  7.  Remarks:  HCL Spring Enlargement No. 1 is located and the waters therefrom stored and used exclusively upon land owned by the Applicant.  III. APPLICATION FOR AMENDMENT OF PLAN FOR AUGMENTATION  A.  Amendment:  Applicant wishes to amend that augmentation plan decreed in Case No. 04CW201 to include the HCL Spring Enlargement No. 1 as an augmented structure and source of augmentation water.  B.  Names of Structures to be Augmented:    HCL Spring Enlargement No. 1 in addition to the Henderson Creek Diversion, the HCL Spring, HCL Pond A, HCL Pond B, HCL Pond C, HCL Cascade Ponds, and HCL Pond D as decreed in Case No. 04CW201.  C.  Water Rights to be Used for Augmentation:  HCL Spring Enlargement No. 1 in addition to the HCL Pond Diversion, HCL Spring, and HCL Pond D as decreed in Case No. 04CW201.  D.  Historic Use.  Since its appropriation, the water from HCL Spring Enlargement No. 1 has been used for storage, recreation, fish propagation, and piscatorial uses in HCL Pond A, HCL Pond B, HCL Pond C, and the HCL Cascades on the Applicant’s Property, with return flows returning to Henderson Creek.  As this junior water right is undecreed pending approval of this application, no diversion records exist.  E.  Statement of Plan of Augmentation.  1.  Depletions:  As decreed in case 04CW201, the depletions associated with HCL Pond A, HCL Pond B, HCL Pond C, and the HCL Cascades on the Applicant’s Property are due solely to evaporative loss.  Applicant’s engineer has determined that the combined surface area for all existing storage structures is 0.71 acres, while the surface area of the HCL Pond D augmentation pond is approximately 0.95 acres, for a total surface area of 1.66 acres.  Applicant’ s engineer has determined the total annual evaporative loss from these structures for a dry year to be 5.53 acre feet, as shown in attached Tables 2 & 3.
2.  On-Site Augmentation.    The on-site augmentation source is supplied through releases from the HCL Pond D, when a call is placed on the stream during the irrigation season.  Releases will be made through an outlet structure from the pond and into Henderson Creek, located immediately adjacent to the HCL Augmentation Pond.  Henderson Creek is believed to be a perennial stream at this location, and transit losses are assumed to be zero, given the proximity of the HCL Pond D augmentation structure to Henderson Creek.  The Division of Water Resources will determine the schedule of releases. Under the requested amendment, the HCL Pond D will be filled to its 3.8 acre foot capacity by the HCL Pond Diversion, the HCL Spring Enlargement No. 1, and the HCL Spring via HCL Cascades, HCL Pond A, HCL Pond B and HCL Pond C when in priority, and will subsequently release water as required by the Division of Water Resources to augment evaporative losses from those structures when out-of-priority.  E.  All land upon which water is to be diverted, stored or released pursuant to this  Application is owed by Applicant.  GUNNISON COUNTY
YOU ARE FURTHER NOTIFIED THAT you have until the last day of August 2008, 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:  $90.00; 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.
