On June 13th the Supreme Court decisively sided with Oklahoma and rejected Texas’ claim that it has a right under a 30-year-old agreement to cross their common border for water to serve the fast-growing Fort Worth area.
Intensifying drought has prompted the first wintertime call on administration of water rights in the North Platte River drainage in Wyoming since 2005, an announcement that will re
Texas filed suit against New Mexico over Rio Grande Compact disputes, with Colorado brought into the fray as a result, Colorado Division of Water Resources Division 3 Engineer Craig Cotten told San Luis Valley water leaders during Tuesday’s Rio Grande Roundtable meeting. The suit, filed in U.S.

Nebraska is imposing limits on the use of the Republican River to make sure enough water flows downstream to Kansas this year in the midst of a drought. The state Department of Natural Resources issued an order this week requiring additional conservation measures in the river basin to help Nebraska comply with a long-standing agreement with Kansas and Colorado.
It seemed anyone who was or is someone in the production, distribution or consumption of water in Southwest Colorado for the last 60 years gathered Tuesday at a spot on Long Hollow. The occasion was the groundbreaking for the Long Hollow Reservoir dam, the key component in an effort to store water for Colorado ranchers and help satisfy the state’s La Plata River obligation to New Mexico.

Colorado is running ahead on its deliveries of water to Kansas under the Arkansas River Compact. Accounting for flows through 2010 shows that Colorado has credits of about 44,000 acre-feet in a 10-year running average of flows, said Kevin Salter, of the Kansas engineering staff. The accounting is required as part of the Kansas v. Colorado U.S.
A Nebraska lawmaker has asked the state to forgive a $9 million loan that helped pay farmers in the Republican River basin for sending some of their irrigation water to Kansas in 2007. State Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial introduced the bill on Wednesday. The water was sent to Kansas to help Nebraska comply with a compact that guides use of the river.
Nebraska water officials are moving ahead with a detailed study of a pipeline that would dump groundwater into the Republican River for use by Kansas.
