Adv. #2 - Water, Water

Mesa Verde pottery

Water is a valuable resource in the west. Houses here have (1) city water, (2) well or (3) cistern (you haul). It gets dicey watering landscaping with those sources.

We're different. In addition to city water, we have TWO irrigation sources totaling about 40 acre feet per year!

  • Domestic house water - metered from a commercial treated water system
  • Irrigation water - lake water piped and pressurized to our mesa top
  • Irrigation water - ditch fed by gated pipe to lower pasture (hay or grazing)


The Lower Bauer Lake water comes by pipeline thru the pasture to the top of the hill. At the main house, this piped irrigation water fills our 75 foot diameter (lined) pond you see above just by opening a valve - no pump required. Besides just the beauty of having water (the above picture shows the pond with Mesa Verde in the background), the pond is the water source for our landscape irrigation system for the 2+ acres of landscaping around the lodge. We have 6 sprinkler lines on a timer.

Furthermore, gated pipe is available to be connected to this water near the southwest corner of the fencing where there is a 4 inch riser and faucet. This would allow irrigation of the approx. 5 acres which has not yet been landscaped or turned to pasture for the horses.

Next, we use gated pipe in the pasture along Highway 184, connected to our adjudicated water right, to irrigate our lower pasture. You can grow native grass hay on the pasture or choose another crop. Water typically runs from May - August.
