From the Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):

The Colorado Water Protective and Development Association asked for the continuance of a long-standing lease agreement with the Pueblo water board this year after its prior agreement lapsed. The new lease, as this type of sale is called, will be at a higher rate that reflects changes in the long-term lease rates charged by the board, said Alan Ward, water resources administrator. The 2-year contract is for $178.27 per acre-foot for 1,000 acre-feet per year for the next two years. The rate is the same Aurora pays for buying 5,000 acre-feet a year from the Pueblo water board, and close to the amount of two leases approved in December for 2-year contracts with Mt. Massive Golf Club and Trans Colorado.
