DWR Guidance

 

IM WSP enrollment for year 2020 closed on July 31, 2019. The links and information below remain as reference. Enrollment material for year 2021 membership will be posted when available.

 

IM WSP was established to provide an alternate choice for water well augmentation. Here you will find correspondence from the Colorado Division of Water Rsources (DWR) addressing the need for augmentation and importance of conserving water resources.

 

Also included is guidance for owners of DECREED WELLS wishing to participate in WSP.

For DECREED WELLS - You must have your decreed water rights ammended to move to WSP. If your well has a prior individual water rights decree associated with it, the case number will be on the first page of your well permit information on the Division of Water Resources website: http://water.state.co.us/DataMaps/RecordsResearch/Pages/default.aspx. 

 

Under 'Feature Type', it will say "Decreed” and give the case number (This is a number other than the old IM Augmentation Plan #W-7389).  Most wells are not decreed.  However, if you have a decreed well, the decree must be amended if you wish to move to WSP. 

 

IM WSP is not responsible for this change. The action is between you, DWR, and the Water Court.  If you have a decreed well, please see the additional documents in the links below. There is a Letter from DWR explaining your options, the required form for your completion, and a template on how to complete your form.  They have been provided for your convenience only.  You need to file the forms yourself. Upon approval and completion, you can file as a New Enrollee using the link on the WSP Forms page.
