Colorado Supreme Court affirms water court ruling

DENVER — The Colorado Supreme Court is affirming a water court’s ruling over water rights being sought to serve about 50,000 people in Arapahoe County.

As part of a project with the East Cherry Creek Valley Water and Sanitation District, the United Water and Sanitation District had sought to acquire and change agricultural water rights held by two irrigation companies for municipal uses.

The water court considers historic use in determining how much water is covered by a water right. On Tuesday, the Colorado Supreme Court today affirmed a water court ruling limiting the companies’ rights. The water court had said it was trying to protect against harm to other water rights.

The cities of Denver, Thornton, Brighton, Aurora and Englewood were among those with interests in the case.
