From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):

“The use of the water by Woodmoor is not in accordance with our bylaws and is not acceptable,” said Dan Henrichs, High Line superintendent. “The board voted not to approve it.” Wood- moor, located north of Colorado Springs, has contracts to purchase 47.8 shares on the High Line Canal, mostly at the end of the ditch. In order to use the water outside ditch boundaries, it would have to get the board’s approval. While the board has sold water through a lease arrangement to Aurora in the past, there is no guarantee that water could be used outside the ditch boundaries, Henrichs said.
