The district continues to secure reliable water sources as it transitions from non-renewable Denver Basin groundwater to renewable surface water. In doing so, the district has made a series of recent water purchases with the Stonewall Springs Reservoir Co. The district now controls 1,850-acre feet of storage out of a total of 2,050 acres in the South Reservoir at Stonewall Springs. The water to fill the South Reservoir comes from the Arkansas River, just east of Pueblo, Fountain Creek, Denver Basin return flows, and the district’s Upper Arkansas Basin water assets. Stonewall includes two other reservoirs, the East and Central, which will be constructed in the future.
