The well water used by homes in Spring Ranch is granted to us by Water Court Decree.
The well water used by homes in Spring Ranch is granted to us by Water Court Decree. Each homeowner has a well permit issued to them for this usage. The Spring Ranch property owners association is tasked with the management of records and compliance with the decrees terms through our relationship with the State Engineer’s office.
Well water must not be used for landscape, trees, inside water features, swimming pools or hot tubs. If water is being used for these purposes, owners must demonstrate that water is being hauled to a cistern and connected to an irrigation/disbursement system. This may be accomplished by proving receipts for water purchase and receiving an ACC review of the cistern’s placement on the property.
