Welcome Bonvue Irrigation Association Members:
The Bonvue Irrigation Association was originally formed in 1947 with the stated objective of delivering low cost irrigation water to its subscribers, and continues to meet this objective today. Membership in the Association enables local residents to obtain and utilize renewable surface water for non-potable purposes for a fraction of the cost of treated groundwater obtained from our local water utilities. Participation in the Association is both environmentally sound and economically smart!
The membership of the Association is comprised of people just like you, and the elected Board Members and Officers are entrusted by you to ensure that this valuable resource will continue to be available now and into the future. Board Members are remunerated only in the yearly compensation of their respective shares, and they devote considerable time and energy to ensuring that this resource ends up on your lawns, under the feet of your children and grandchildren, and in your flower and vegetable gardens.
This is OUR Association, and it is through our membership dues that the Bonvue neighborhood remains as attractive and pleasant as it is. It is up to us, each of us, to use our resources wisely and fairly, thus ensuring that our homes will continue to look as sharp and inviting as they do!

DITCH RIDER The ditch rider telephone number will remain the same in 2017 as it has been since 2015: 720-515-1479. The Board is currently working on staffing the Ditch Rider position for 2017, and hope to have an update posted soon. As last year, dialing the ditch rider number will connect callers with a recorded message. If you are experiencing low water levels or other issues, please call and listen to the message to see if it answers your questions. Low water levels and other known issues will be updated regularly. If you have an emergency situation, please leave your name, address and telephone number with brief description of your emergency. Either the ditch rider or a board member will be notified and emergency calls will receive a return call within 20 minutes. All other messages will be attended to as soon as reasonably practicable.
Water is measured via the gauge at the weir on the north end of the channels near the headgates. Date, time, and value as documented are noted below, and the relative change since the last measurement is noted in the picture.
