714-012.120 Water rights evaluation
Scope and Contents
This series consists of materials generated and gathered by Wright Water Engineers reflecting their work with Great Western Sugar Company on a variety of projects, including water augmentation, water rights, water use, and wastewater and land treatment studies. Materials include notes, reports, copies of court documents and water diversion records as well as copies of court filings and decrees. The law firm of Moses, Wittemyer, Harrison and Woodruff was involved as well on behalf of Great Western Sugar Company. Work completed included plants in Eaton, Fort Morgan, Greeley, Johnstown, Loveland, Longmont, Ovid, Sterling, and Severence. Great Western Sugar Company went out of business in 1985. Early dates reflect photocopied materials of these documents, not originals. The series is arranged by the numerical headings provided by Wright Water Engineers, and alphabetically within each grouping. When numbers were lacking on individual folders, if internal materials reflected those headings, they were used; with some folders adjacency to other similar folders was used as a key to filing. When no clear numerical heading could be determined, folders were arranged alphabetically by folder title following the numerical headings. One folder of oversize drawings and maps is listed at the end. Variations of Great Western Sugar Company (e.g., GW, Great Western, Great Western Sugar, etc.), were all filed as if they contained the entire name.
