    Augmentation, PARK COUNTY. Names of Reservoirs: Daybreak Pond #3. Daybreak Pond #2. Daybreak Pond #1. Legal Descriptions of Locations: Daybreak Pond #3 Legal Description: Northeast 1/4 of the Southwest 1/4, Section 36, Township 13S, Range 73W, of the 6th P.M., Park County, Colorado. Pond Total Capacity: 0.83 acre feet, absolute. Maximum Height of Dam/Berm (above existing ground surface): 6 feet Length of Dam/Berm: 185 feet. Maximum surface area of pond: 0.28 acres. Daybreak Pond #2. Legal Description: located in the North 1/2 of the Southwest 1/4, Section 36, Township 13S, Range 73W, of the 6th P.M., Park County, Colorado. Pond Total Capacity: 1.23 acre feet total (0.73 acre feet, absolute; 0.5 acre feet conditional). Maximum Height of Dam/Berm(above existing ground surface): 7 feet. Length of Dam/Berm: 153 feet. Current surface area of pond: 0.21 acres. Maximum surface area of pond: 0.35 acres. Daybreak Pond #1. Legal Description: Located in the West 1/2 of Southwest 1/4, Section 36, Township 13S, Range 73W, of the 6th P.M., Park County, Colorado. Pond Total Capacity: 1.89 acre feet absolute. Maximum Height of Dam/Berm(above existing ground surface): 9.9 feet. Length of Dam/Berm: 204 feet. Maximum surface area of pond: 0.39 acres. A map attached as Exhibit A shows the location of the ponds. Source: All three ponds are located on the channel of Sims Creek, a tributary to the South Platte River. Appropriation: The appropriation date for all three ponds is April 13, 2015. The appropriation was initiated by the construction of the ponds. Water was diverted in priority and placed to beneficial use on July 10, 2015. List of All Proposed Uses: The use for all three ponds is riparian habitat, wildlife habitat, fish propagation, wetlands enhancement, erosion control, livestock watering and storage for these uses. All uses will be made on Applicant’s property. Applicant seeks a plan for augmentation to cover any out-of-priority diversions and evaporation associated with three ponds on the Applicant’s Property. Name of Structures to be Augmented: Daybreak Pond No. 3, Daybreak Pond No. 2, and Daybreak Pond No. 1 (collectively, “Daybreak Ponds”), as described above. Water Rights to be used for augmentation: The source of the augmentation water to replace any out of priority depletions from the beneficial uses adjudicated therein emanates from the Applicant’s contractual right in perpetuity to receive consumptive use water decreed for augmentation purposes in owned by the City of Aurora and stored in Spinney Mountain Reservoir in Park County. The Applicant’s contractual right to receive the replacement water to be used for augmentation derives from a portion of a total of 190 annual acre feet of consumptive use credits referenced in the April 26, 1982 agreement between the City of Aurora and High Chaparral, Inc., which agreement was recorded on July 21, 1982, in Book 342 at Page 341 of the Park County Recorder’s Office. The contractual right with the City of Aurora entitles Applicant to receive storage water from Spinney Mountain Reservoir, which can be used for augmentation and other purposes on the land owned by the Applicant. This water supply is a firm year round supply of augmentation water to be delivered by the City of Aurora on demand as required by the Applicant. The use of this water is free of costs or fees and all maintenance or storage fees. Such water will be made available by the City of Aurora regardless of the actual amount of water stored in Spinney Mountain Reservoir during any particular year. However, Applicant’s right to receive storage water from Spinney Mountain Reservoir is not cumulative from year to year. Statement of Plan for Augmentation: The total high surface area of the Daybreak Ponds is 1.02 acres total. In Case No. 96CW1038, District Court, Water Division 1, decreed on December 4, 2002, the Applicant’s predecessor obtained a plan for augmentation for several ponds located on Sims Creek. In that decree, the Court founds that the annual net evaporation rate of the ponds located on Sims Creek was 1.55 annual acre feet per acre of surface area exposed. Accordingly, the Daybreak Ponds will cause a maximum of 1.58 annual acre-feet of evaporative depletions to the South Platte River. Applicant may also seek to fill the ponds under this plan for augmentation as well. The Daybreak Ponds are currently located on-channel and may take an additional effective precipitation credit. Applicants will make releases of the augmentation water listed above to replace all out of priority depletions. Applicant owns the land on which the Daybreak Ponds are located. Applicant shall install and maintain such water measuring devices as deemed essential by the State Engineer or Division Engineer and the same shall be installed and operated in accordance with the instruction of that office. Water used to fill the ponds may be placed in lined or piped channels. Applicant may also line, cover or otherwise take all steps to reduce the loss of water stored in the reservoirs.

After October 15, 2009, and beginning no later than 2011, Applicant began to form its Site Development Plan, including the Water Master Plan, for the Flying J Ranch. The Site Development Plan was initially approved by Jefferson County in 2011, and an amended plan was approved in 2013. The Water Master Plan similarly has been revised and updated since initial approval, including most recently in 2016. The Applicant’s Site Development Plan, among

    other things, identifies the planned location for the Flying J Pond; the location of the Flying J Ranch Well; the location of cisterns for domestic use of the Flying J Ranch Well System water right; the planned location for the swimming facilities; and for various other planned facilities (such as cabins, staff buildings, and other facilities for campers and staff) in or at which the water rights decreed in Case No. 2007CW0146 will be beneficially used. e. In 2011, Applicant began designing a water treatment system to supply the camps at the Flying J Ranch on a year-round basis. At present, the system is being designed to serve an existing staff lodge and to-be-constructed infirmary and retreat centers, and it will include a new water supply well, treatment building, and a storage tank. Applicant received approval of this new water treatment system from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment on March 14, 2017. Applicant is presently preparing its building permit application to Jefferson County for the water treatment system and the infirmary. f. Applicant planned and constructed the wastewater processing plant and collection pipes features identified in its Water Master Plan, beginning in 2013 and continuing through, and including, 2015 (with the facilities completed on or about June 2015) as part of the orderly development of the water rights decreed in Case No. 2007CW0146, as well as its integrated water supply system and infrastructure. g. Since October 15, 2009, and until the present, Applicant has continued to develop the camps at the Flying J Ranch, including constructing new staff and guest facilities (e.g., building tent platforms, meeting tents, a toilet building, a second bathhouse, open-air showers for staff, dining tent, and recreation facilities, including a basketball court and bouldering wall; renovation of a shower building; and expansion of the kitchen) and planning a therapeutic, residential outdoor program for young adults. Applicant has engaged the assistance of consultants, such as architects and water resource engineers, as necessary to bring water to these facilities. i. Since the Ramah Camp on the Flying J Ranch first opened following entry of the decree on October 15, 2009, the number of campers and staff has increased. As of the date of this application, the capacity of the camp is 200 campers and 110 staff. For most of the 2017 summer camp season, the camp was at capacity. ii. Applicant will hold its inaugural camping season for its newly planned Jewish camp on the Flying J Ranch in January 2018, with an estimated 8 campers and 12 staff. h. Since October 15, 2009, and until the present, Applicant and its consultants have held meetings with the local fire department to discuss fire protection water flow and fire management on the Flying J Ranch Property. The importance of effective fire flow and fire management was confirmed following an on-site fire in 2017. i. On November 30, 2016, Applicant applied for a supplemental well for the Flying J Ranch Well, as part of the Flying J Ranch Well System, which permit was issued on December 7, 2016, with Permit No. 80474-F. Applicant completed construction of this well on April 6, 2017, in the NW1/4 of the NW1/4 of Section 28, Township 9 South, Range 71 West of the 6th P.M., Jefferson County, Colorado, at a point that is 1,358 feet from the North section line and 651 feet from the West section line and that has the following UTM coordinates (based on UTM Zone 13 and datum NAD83): Easting 469999; and Northing: 4343367. Because the well drilled pursuant to Permit No. 80474-F was completed more than 100 feet from Wigwam Creek, this well is not part of the Flying J Ranch Well System. Applicant’s present intent is to convert this well to a monitoring well instead. j. On August 1, 2017, Applicant applied for another supplemental well for the Flying J Ranch Well, as part of the Flying J Ranch Well System, which permit was issued on September 7, 2017, with permit no. 81320-F. Applicant completed construction of this well on October 3, 2017, at a point located within 100 feet of Wigwam Creek, as more particularly described in paragraph 2.e. above. k. Applicant and its consultant performed a reconnaissance survey of the location for the Flying J Pond on May 9, 2017. l. Since October 15, 2009, and until the present, Applicant has expended no less than $4,955,279 on capital expenses, major projects, and water consultants to develop the camps at the Flying J Ranch, including the water rights and related facilities and infrastructure. m. Annual accounting of water use has been provided on a regular basis to Mountain Mutual Reservoir Company and North Fork Associates, LLC, who has reported the use to the Division Engineer. 5. Names and Addresses of Owners or Reputed Owners of the Land Upon Which Any New Diversion Structure or Storage Structure, or Modification to Any Existing Diversion or Storage Structure Is or Will Be Constructed or Upon Which Water is or Will be Stored, Including Any Modification to the Existing Storage Pool.

Provide a detailed outline of what has been done toward completion, including expenditures: From November 4, 2011 through November 30, 2017, Thornton performed the following work and incurred the following costs, all or in part, concerning the claimed absolute and remaining conditional portion of its Thornton Ponds water rights and its Thornton Pond Exchanges (“Subject Water Rights”), including work and expenditures on specific structures integral to the diversion and use of the Subject Water Rights and in the further development of Thornton’s integrated water supply systems within which the Subject Water Rights have been and will be placed to beneficial use. The work done and costs incurred set forth below are illustrative and not exhaustive and Thornton reserves the right to present evidence of additional activities and costs in support of this application. 4.1. Thornton Integrated System Activities: During the diligence period, Thornton has continued in the development and improvement of its Clear Creek and South Platte River water supply system including many of the structures used in the exercise of the Subject Water Rights. The Thornton Ponds water rights and Thornton Pond Exchanges are components of the integrated water supply system that Thornton operates to provide itself and its customers with water for municipal purposes. The Thornton Ponds water rights and Thornton Pond Exchanges are operated in conjunction with, and are integrated with other structures owned by Thornton. Costs incurred by Thornton during the diligence period totaled approximately $1.289 million dollars, and include the following work: 4.1.1. 08CW82 Measuring Facilities: Thornton designed and constructed stilling wells and water level recording facilities at 16 of the Thornton Ponds throughout the City. The ability to measure water levels and inflows is a requirement of Decree entered in Case No. 08CW82 and of the State Engineer. The project included the construction of two flumes at the inflows to Aylor Ponds and Hunters Glen Reservoir. Stilling wells were installed at Civic Center Lake, Eastlake Reservoir No.3, Grandview Ponds, Grange Creek Park Pond, Recreation Center Pond, Aylor Ponds, and Hunter Glen Lake. Expenditures on this project were approximately $402,000. 4.1.2. Material Expenses for Thornton Ponds: Thornton regularly maintains and repairs the facilities at the Thornton Ponds. This includes purchasing items like filters, valves, electrical supplies, treatment supplies and other parts. Thornton spent over $23,000 on these parts. 4.1.3. Marshall Lakes Aeration: Thornton purchased and installed an aeration system at Marshall Lake to improve water quality. This project was approximately $15,000. 4.1.4. 08CW82 LIRF Re-computation Requirement: the Decree entered in Case No. 08CW82 requires the City to re-compute, every five years, the deep percolation percentages for each of its city parks and the golf course for which the City is claiming LIRFs under the Decree. The City performed this re-computation and filed a report and revised accounting forms with the Court and served the same on the Division Engineer and objectors during the diligence period at a cost of approximately $20,000. 4.1.5. Water Court: Thornton has actively participated in water court proceedings to protect the Subject Water Right decreed in Case No. 08CW82. Legal and engineering costs incurred relating to the protection of Thornton’s Clear Creek and South Platte River water rights portfolio, including the Subject Water Rights during the diligence period were approximately $829,000. 5. If claim to make absolute: Thornton has exercised the Thornton Ponds water rights in-priority during the diligence period. 5.1. Description of place where water was applied to beneficial use. All water applied to beneficial use under the decree in Case No. 08CW82 was used within Thornton’s water service area. 5.2. The structures, amounts claimed absolute, the date claimed absolute and the call on the river are set forth in the table below.

In April 2012, Centennial increased the size of its storage space allocation through the acquisition of the redistributed allocation of the City of Brighton, bringing Centennial’s storage space allocation in Chatfield Reservoir to 6,922 acre feet, including its allocation through its participation in the South Metropolitan Water Supply Authority. This is approximately 34% of the 20,600 acre feet of reallocated storage space that is part of the Chatfield Reallocation Project. The final draft of the feasibility report and environmental impact statement for the Project was issued in June 2012 and the Chatfield Reallocation Project Final Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement was issued in July 2013. The State of Colorado Fish and Wildlife Mitigation plan for the Project was approved in January 2014. The Record of Decision affirming the Chatfield Reallocation Project as the preferred alternative and authorizing the reallocation of 20,600 acre feet of storage space in Chatfield Reservoir from flood control use to multipurpose use, including municipal storage, was issued on May 29, 2014. The Department of the Army and the Colorado Department of Natural Resources (“CDNR”) entered into a Water Storage Agreement for the Chatfield Reallocation Project on October 9, 2014. On October 16, 2015, Centennial entered into a Water Provider Agreement with CDNR for the permanent right to use 6,922 acre feet of reallocated storage space in Chatfield Reservoir. In connection with the Water Provider Agreement, Centennial deposited $4,502,657 in cash and $44,440,000 in Colorado Water Conservation Board loan proceeds, for a total of $48,942,657, into an escrow account to cover its pro rata share of estimated future payments to complete the mitigation obligations for the project. Centennial staff and consultants participated in all aspects of the process to obtain the required approvals for the Chatfield Reallocation Project, including the negotiation of the various agreements described above and the creation of the Chatfield Reservoir Mitigation Company described in paragraph 4.C below. C. The Chatfield Reservoir Mitigation Company (“CRMC”) was formed by Project participants on October 8, 2015, for the purpose of conducting such business as may be necessary to satisfy the mitigation obligations of the participants as required for implementation of the approved Chatfield Reallocation Project. On October 15, 2015, Centennial entered into the Chatfield Reservoir Management Agreement with CDNR, the other project participants and the City and County of Denver, acting by and through its Board of Water Commissioners, which provides for various management and operational terms and conditions for use of the reallocated storage space authorized by the Project. Centennial is a member of the CRMC and has a seat on the Board of the company. On October 26, 2015, the CRMC entered into a contract with CDM Smith for management of the

    implementation of the Chatfield Reallocation Project and subsequently entered into eleven separate consultant contracts for project design, totaling $18,200,000. Initial construction of features associated with completion of mitigation obligations for the Project began in October 2017. To date, Centennial has expended approximately $810,000 for consultant contracts and $5,576,839 for capital design as its pro rata share of expenses incurred by the CRMC in connection with implementation of the Project. D. Since December 1, 2011, Centennial has expended more than $27,332,000 on the continuing development of its municipal water system and water rights, including the development of facilities necessary to utilize water stored under the subject conditional water right. These expenditures include expenditures associated with Centennial’s water treatment and wastewater treatment plants, water and wastewater pipelines, groundwater wells, raw water storage facilities and miscellaneous water infrastructure. E. Since December 1, 2011, Centennial has continued to participate in the Chatfield Watershed Authority, formed under authority of the Denver Regional Council of Governments. The Authority has initiated water quality related studies and is developing land management plans to protect the quality of inflows to Chatfield Reservoir. Centennial’s participation is for the purpose of protecting the quality of water diverted to its municipal system at Chatfield Reservoir, including water that will be stored in the future under the subject conditional water right. F. Since December 1, 2011, Centennial has continued to participate in the Coalition for the Upper South Platte, formerly known as the Upper South Platte Watershed Protection Association. Centennial is in the Members class of the association, with full voting rights and dues obligations. The association was formed in 1998 with the purpose of maintaining or improving water quality and related resources within the South Platte watershed above Strontia Springs dam. Strontia Springs dam is upstream of Chatfield Reservoir. Centennial’s participation in the association is for the purpose of protecting the quality of water diverted to Centennial’s municipal system at Chatfield Reservoir, including water that will be stored in the future under the subject conditional water right. G. Since December 1, 2011, Centennial has participated in numerous Water Court cases to protect the subject conditional water right from injury and has expended in excess of $2,000,000 in legal and engineering fees in such cases during the diligence period. 5. If claim to make absolute - water applied to beneficial use: Not applicable. 6. Name and address of owner of land upon which any new diversion or storage structure or modification to an existing diversion or storage structure or existing storage pool is or will be constructed or upon which water is or will be stored: No new diversion or storage structures are or will be constructed and no modifications to existing diversion or storage structures or existing storage pool are or will be constructed. The land on which Chatfield Reservoir is located is owned by the United States Army Corps of Engineers, 9307 South Platte Canyon Road, Littleton, CO 80128-6901. WHEREFORE, Centennial requests the Court to enter a decree finding that Centennial has proceeded with reasonable diligence toward the completion of the appropriation of the subject conditional water right and continuing the subject conditional water right in full force and effect for an additional diligence period. 17CW3177 COORS BREWING COMPANY; 1801 California Street, Suite 4600, Denver, CO 80202. Stephen H. Leonhardt, Esq., Morgan L. Figuers, Esq., Melissa L. Magee, Esq.; BURNS, FIGA & WILL, P.C.; 6400 South Fiddler’s Green Circle, Suite 1000, Greenwood Village, CO 80111; (303) 796-2626. APPLICATION FOR CHANGE OF WATER RIGHT AND PLAN FOR AUGMENTATION INCLUDING EXCHANGE IN JEFFERSON COUNTY. 2. Purpose of Application: Coors Brewing Company (“Coors” or “Applicant”) is a Colorado corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Molson Coors Brewing Co., which owns and operates a large industrial complex near the City of Golden, Colorado. In supplying water to that complex, Coors diverts water from Clear Creek, by means of the Coors Industries Ditch for direct use, for storage in its Jefferson Storage System, and from the alluvium tributary to Clear Creek through the Coors Underground Springs. In order to make essentially continuous diversions from Clear Creek and its tributary alluvium, Coors replaces out-of-priority depletions to Clear Creek and the South Platte River which result from Coors’ beneficial use of water diverted under the junior water rights decreed to those structures. Presently the provision of augmenting supplies to replace such depletions from out-of-priority diversions through those structures is made through operations under

  • 13

    Decrees approving plans for augmentation including exchanges and changes of water rights in Consolidated Cases Nos. W-8036(75) and W-8256(76) (commonly referred to as the “Coors Augmentation I Plan”); Case No. 89CW234 (the “Coors Augmentation II Plan”); Case No. 99CW236 (the “Coors Augmentation III Plan”); and as applicable, in accordance with terms and conditions of the Decrees entered in Cases Nos. 88CW268 and 88CW272 (the “Cosmic Exchange”) and Cases Nos. 90CW64, 91CW122 and 96CW1117. Coors seeks approval to change an additional water right that Coors owns and has the right to use, the Miles and Eskins Ditch right, for the incorporation and utilization of these rights into a supplemental integrated plan for augmentation including exchange and changes of water rights. This plan will be referred to as the “Coors Augmentation IV Plan.” The Application does not waive any rights or priorities created by the Coors Augmentation I, the Coors Augmentation II, or the Coors Augmentation III Plans. 3. Jurisdiction: The Water Court has jurisdiction over the subject matter of this application pursuant to C.R.S. §§ 37-92-203 and 37-92-302. Change of Water Right. 4. Decreed water right for which change is sought: 3.61 cfs of the Miles and Eskins Ditch water right. 4.1. Name of structure: Miles and Eskins Ditch. 4.2. Date and description of original and all relevant subsequent decrees: 4.2.1. The Miles and Eskins Ditch water right was originally decreed in the District Court of the Second Judicial District of the State of Colorado, Sitting in and for Arapahoe County, “Matter of a Certain Petition for Adjudication of the Priority of Rights to the Use of Water for Irrigation in Water District No. Seven (7) in Said State,” entered October 4, 1884 (“1884 Decree”) as Priority No. 15 on Clear Creek, with an appropriation date of June 11, 1861. The amount of water originally decreed to the Miles and Eskins Ditch was 4.0 cfs for irrigation purposes. 4.2.2. There have been two decreed changes in point of diversion for the Miles and Eskins Ditch water right: 4.2.2.1. In Case No. 50043, District Court, City and County of Denver, Second Judicial District, January 3, 1911, 0.39 cfs of the water right belonging to William Lee was transferred from the headgate of the Miles and Eskins Ditch to the headgate of the Agricultural Ditch. This change left 3.61 cfs at the original point of diversion of the Miles and Eskins Ditch. 4.2.2.2. The point of diversion for the remaining 3.61 cfs of the Miles and Eskins Ditch water right, which is the subject of this Application, was changed to the headgate of the Rocky Mountain Ditch in Case No. W-7435 (Water Div. 1), January 24, 1977. 4.2.2.3. The location of the point of diversion at the Rocky Mountain Ditch is shown on the map attached as Figure 1. 4.2.3. Legal description of structure as described in most recent decree that adjudicated the location: The presently decreed point of diversion is the headgate of the Rocky Mountain Ditch located on the south side of the Croke Dam being in the NE1/4 NE1/4 NW1/4 of Section 26, T3S, R70W, of the 6th P.M., more specifically described as bearing S18°12’25”W a distance of 401.11’ from the north quarter corner of Section 26, pursuant to the W-7435 Decree. The UTM coordinates of the Rocky Mountain Ditch headgate are UTM X 483376 and UTM Y 4402024 (1). (1) Applicant obtained all UTM coordinates and WDID numbers described in this Application from the HydroBase database found at http://cdss.state.co.us/OnlineTools/Pages/ StructuresDiversions.aspx. The UTM coordinates are included in this Application at the request of the Division Engineer to facilitate administration. In the event that any UTM coordinates or WDID numbers are inaccurate, it shall not affect the rights to be adjudicated through this Application. The Rocky Mountain Ditch WDID is 0700652. 4.2.4. Decreed source of water: Clear Creek. 4.2.5. Appropriation dates and decreed amount: June 11, 1861; 4.0 cfs. The Miles and Eskins Ditch right was adjudicated as irrigation priority number 15 on Clear Creek. (The appropriation date of Clear Creek Priority No. 1 was February 25, 1860.) Because the 1884 Decree was the original adjudication of irrigation water rights in District 7, the relative priorities of the water rights decreed therein and in other original adjudications in the South Platte River basin are determined by their appropriation dates. 4.2.6. Decreed uses: Irrigation. 4.2.7. Amount of water that Applicant intends to change: Coors’s 3.61 cfs. Coors owns the 3.61 cfs of the Miles and Eskins Ditch right that was changed in Case No. W-7435, as described in paragraph 4.2.2.2. above. Coors does not own and does not seek to change the 0.39 cfs that was changed in Case No. 50043, as described in paragraph 4.2.2.1. above. 5. Detailed description of proposed change: Coors seeks to change its 3.61 cfs of the Miles and Eskins Ditch right to allow for augmentation use, exchange, and storage, for the proposed uses listed below, in addition to the currently decreed irrigation use. 5.1. Historical Use: The Miles and Eskins water right has been used for irrigation of lands in accordance with

  • 14

    its decreed rights, including the Applewood Golf Course, as provided in the Decree in Case No. W-7435. The Applewood Golf Course is generally located in the NW1/4 of NE1/4 of Section 30, the SW1/4 of NE1/4 of Section 30, the SE1/4 of NW1/4 of Section 30, and the NE1/4 of NW1/4 of Section 30, all in T3S, R69W, as shown on Figure 1. 5.2. Diversion Records: A summary of historical diversion records for the Miles and Eskins Ditch right is attached as Exhibit 1. 5.3. Historical Consumptive Use: The Miles and Eskins Ditch right historically irrigated lands south and east of the original Miles and Eskins headgate location. These lands were later developed into the Applewood Golf Course, which continued to be irrigated with the Miles and Eskins Ditch right. Coors acquired the 3.61 cfs of the Miles and Eskins Ditch right in 1966 and 1968 and leased it to the Applewood Golf Course for irrigation. Coors continued to divert this water through the Miles and Eskins Ditch headgate, and then through the Rocky Mountain Ditch headgate pursuant to Case No. W-7435, and has continued to lease this water for irrigation on the Applewood Golf Course. Coors’s engineering consultant estimates that from 1974–2016, historical consumptive use averaged 164.3 af/yr. 5.4. Proposed Uses: Coors seeks to change the uses of the Miles and Eskins right to include agricultural, commercial, and mechanical purposes, including drinking water, sanitation, fire protection, cooling, manufacturing and normal urban usage, exchange, storage in the Jefferson Storage System and in ponds on the Applewood Golf Course, and augmentation use, including the rights of reuse, successive use and disposition of the fully-consumable augmented diversions of water made pursuant to the plan for augmentation described below. Use and reuse will occur primarily at the Coors Industrial Complex in the Clear Creek Basin near Golden, Colorado, consisting of lands owned by Coors, its parent company (Molson Coors Brewing Co.), and affiliated entities including MillerCoors LLC, and generally located in Sections 23, 24, 25, 26, and 27, all in T3S R70W of the 6th P.M., and Sections 19 and 29, T3S R69W of the 6th P.M., as shown on Figure 1. Use, successive use and disposition may occur at locations downstream on Clear Creek and the South Platte River, in Jefferson, Denver, Adams or Weld County, pursuant to lease by Coors and separate decree or administrative approval. These uses are collectively referred to as the “changed uses” throughout the Application. Coors may also continue to use the Miles and Eskins Ditch right for irrigation on the Applewood Golf Course, as provided in the Decree in Case No. W-7435 (Water Div. 1). Coors intends to continue diverting the changed Miles and Eskins water rights at the Rocky Mountain Ditch headgate (the currently decreed location) for the changed uses and for continued irrigation. 5.5. Proposed terms and conditions: 5.5.1. Coors’s use will not exceed the historical consumptive use of its 3.61 cfs of Miles and Eskins Ditch water right. 5.5.2. Coors will divert the Miles and Eskins Ditch right for the changed uses from March 1 through October 31. 5.5.3. Coors will replace the historical return flows from the decreed irrigation use of the Miles and Eskins Ditch water rights at locations appropriate to prevent injury, as described in paragraphs 9.22., 12 and 13. The sources of return flow replacement include the Miles and Eskins Ditch right, releases from water stored in the Jefferson Storage System as described in paragraph 9, and other sources owned by Coors that are reusable pursuant to other decrees. 5.6. No injury. The changes sought in this Application will not cause injury to other water rights. 5.7. Accounting and Operations: Coors will maintain accounting that will be submitted on a monthly basis to the Water Commissioner and the Division 1 office. Plan for Augmentation. 6. Statement of Plan for Augmentation: Coors seeks judicial approval of this augmentation plan (Coors Augmentation Plan IV), which is to be integrated with and supplemental to the Coors Augmentation I, II, and III Plans, to allow Coors to make essentially continuous diversions from Clear Creek and its tributary alluvium under its junior water rights. Whenever a call is made to increase stream flow for the benefit of senior water rights Coors, while operating under this Decree, shall either reduce its junior diversions to the extent those diversions reduce the availability of water to such senior water rights or provide replacement flows of water in substitution for its out-of-priority depletions to Clear Creek and the South Platte River that result from Coors’s diversion, storage, and beneficial use of water diverted by its augmented structures. The replacement flows Coors proposes to provide in this Augmentation Plan IV will be supplied from the senior water rights Coors owns as described in paragraph 4 above, in the manner hereinafter described. The Coors Augmentation IV Plan is set forth as follows: 7. Water Rights and Structures to be Augmented: Coors will augment out-of-priority depletions resulting from the diversion and beneficial use of water from the
