From The Fort Morgan Times (Dan Barker):

The council may approved a resolution allowing city officials to apply to the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District to renew the city’s right to use Colorado-Big Thompson project water. The city of Fort Morgan will apply for 87 acre feet primarily for domestic, irrigation and industrial use within the city. Fort Morgan Director of Water Resources Gary Dreessen said that it was 87 acre feet, not 80 acre feet as indicated in the council’s agenda packet. Renewing the right to use Fort Morgan’s allocation of Colorado-Big Thompson water is an annual event, he said.
