Last week, the Garfield County Road and Bridge department replaced the damaged culvert where County Road 238 crosses the ditch. The remaining work involves pouring a concrete vault in the gap between the new pipe and an older one, just upstream of the road crossing. A manhole cover will allow access to the intersection of the two pipes. A contractor is on site today. In conformity with state laws that protect ditch rights-of-way, all of the work is being done at county expense.

The ditch company has promised the county that no water will arrive at the site until after the work is completed, around April 19th. After that date, water supplies to the lower ditch will be possible, but dependent on the amount that is available from Elk Creek.

The Roseman Ditch company will hold a special meeting on Thursday, March 28th, 2013, to discuss measuring devices. Shareholders have received a letter from the Colorado state engineer’s office informing them of measuring device requirements to be enforced beginning in 2014. This meeting will be an educational session to inform shareholders of the kinds of measuring devices that are available and appropriate for various uses and amounts of water.

The meeting will be held in the New Castle Public Library at 6:00.

At the annual meeting on March 15, 2013, members of the Roseman Ditch Company voted to incorporate as a mutual ditch company in the state of Colorado. The Articles of Incorporation were adopted as written, and the bylaws were accepted with only a couple of small corrections of typographical errors. Five out of the six sections elected members to a new board of directors. Dave Martin was re-elected as president.

Current shareholders of the Roseman Ditch who have not yet joined the corporation may do so by contacting Dave Martin to arrange to sign the bylaws.

The annual shareholders’ meeting of the Roseman Ditch Company will be held on March 15, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. at the New Castle Community Center. Prior to the meeting, shareholders will receive an important package of documents. Please review these documents. The ditch company’s board of directors will be present to answer your questions, as will our attorney.

A great deal of work has been done by our board of directors and the incorporation committee in order to make our organization more effective, with the goal of improving operations along the ditch.

The documents are also available in electronic form. You can use the links below to access them.
