Longmont Water Resources Planning

Longmont Water Resources Planning

Longmont, Colorado

Deere & Ault Consultants, Inc. has provided the City of Longmont with water resources planning services since 1982.

Water resources planning for the City of Longmont has been provided by Deere & Ault since 1982,
including water rights litigation support, engineering design, and construction observation.

Deere & Ault has conducted analyses of future raw water demands, evaluated the yield of the City’s raw water supplies, compared future drought demands with raw water supplies to determine the adequacy of the City’s raw water supply system, and evaluated alternatives for future raw water supplies. A raw water master plan was also developed for the City.

Deere & Ault’s staff has provided water rights litigation support for numerous City water rights applications. These applications included:

  • Changes of use from irrigation to municipal use.
  • Changes of use from direct flow to storage.
  • Changes in place of storage for storage decrees.
  • New storage appropriations and quantification of the timing, amount, and location of lawn irrigation return flows within the City.

The largest of these projects was a water rights change of use for six irrigation ditches resulting in the successful transfer of 7,000 acre-feet per year.

Deere & Ault staff assisted in the settlement negotiations associated with these water rights applications.

Additional services include: design and construction observation to the City of Longmont for numerous transmission and distribution pipelines, sanitary sewer lines and dams.
