February 10, 2010--Board acquires water to keep Colo. streams flowing (Canon City Daily Record)

The Colorado Water Conservation Board has acquired water rights to improve late-summer water flows in two streams near Crested Butte. The board acquired 5.45 cubic feet per second of water to increase flows in the Washington Gulch and Slate River. Demands for irrigation water often dry up or deplete flows in the two by mid-July.
