From the Pueblo Chieftain:

“This purchase will help ensure the long-term storage needs for fishing and recreation at John Martin,” said Dan Prenzlow, DOW Southeast Region Manager. “Adding water to the permanent storage pool is an investment that will pay long-term dividends for outdoor recreation and the health of the fishery.” The state purchased the water in the one-time sale, known as a lease, at a price of $20 per acre-foot for a total cost of $60,000 split equally between the two agencies. The water is Colorado River water that was stored in Pueblo Reservoir.
