The final objector in the Tri-State change of use filing for water in the Amity Canal has settled. Here’s a report from Chris Woodka writing for the Pueblo Chieftain. From the article:

Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association plans to present a proposed decree in Division 2 Water Court on March 17 after all 20 objectors in the case either settled or withdrew. “Given the support from all parties in the case, we are optimistic that the court will accept the decree,” said Tri-State spokesman Lee Boughey.

A settlement with the Verhoeff family, which wanted continuing protection of its water rights on the Amity, was filed in the court on Friday. The settlement is the latest in a series of agreements since Tri-State filed for the water change in 2007.
