Where is the water coming from?
The newly acquired water rights are located in irrigation ditches within the South Platte River Basin. This water will be delivered to the Beebe Draw by pipeline or exchange on the South Platte River. It will then be stored in the Beebe Draw until it is pumped out and delivered to the ECCV Water Treatment Plant for treatment and delivery to ACWWA.
