The purpose of the Cotton Ranch Metropolitan District is to supply raw water to all of Cotton Ranch for irrigation. The Metro District maintains the main lines, pumps, irrigation ditches and other items necessary for the proper function of the irrigation system. It also controls access to the main lines by new homeowners looking to tap in for their personal irrigation system.
Water will be turned on May 1, 2023 for both Cotton Ranch and Sky Legend.

Metro raw water system update:
The Metro district operates and maintains the two pump houses in Cotton Ranch and Sky legend. Including operation of the metro main lines and first gate valve off the main line onto each property in the District. Metro also takes care of the diversions off Gypsum Creek and associated ditches. All water within Cotton Ranch and Sky Legend is shared with the Golf Course / Town of Gypsum. The irrigation raw water system is owned and operated by the Metro District and AMCOBI processes the billings sent to all constituents.
Upper pump house: Raw water Filter system installed on 3/2019 and is operating properly

Ditches and Head gates:
Our Chatfield Bartholomew ditch flows by the middle school on Grundell Way and travels down Timberwolf and Whitetail , feeds Red Fox Ponds and empties into our west bar ditch. Our Grundell Brothers and AF Grundell ditch flows through holes # 3 and #4 on the golf course then empties into our west bar ditch which then fills pond #1 by our Lower Pump house. The Metro Board is working with the Town of Gypsum on Chatfield Bartholomew lateral challenges due to some water loss in the ditch system. New Parshall Flume installed on Chatfield Bartholomew lateral 4/2021 and is operating properly. Metro and Town of Gypsum drained Pond #1 and replaced old Morning Glory vault and head gate 3/2021 and is operating properly
Please make sure your Meter boxes are cleaned out for our Meter reader.
