Durango Recreational Water Rights Case Ends
(ksut) - The city of Durango's battle for a Recreational Water Right ended today.
KSUT'S Victor Locke reports.

VICTOR: Water Court Judge Gregory Lymon today approved a settlement to the nearly two year old court case, clearing the way for Durango to plan and build a water and boating park near Smelter Rapids.
Lymon's approval came after the city and several intervenors in the case, most who had challenged the city water right, filed paperwork over the last several weeks agreeing to the settlement.
It gives the city gauranteed flows of 185 to 14-hundred cubic feet per second on the Animas River.
Interim City Manager Jack Rogers calls the settlement a good deal for all.
It means all involved will now avoid what was expected to be a costly two week trial that was scheduled to start in January.
From KSUT, I'm Victor Locke.
