Mealey's (June 18, 2015, 1:14 PM EDT) -- DENVER — In a 5-2 decision, the Colorado Supreme Court on June 1 said a water court did not err in declaring that the developers of a hydropower facility can use water from a water ditch on their property that carries water to a neighboring senior water right holder (Concerning the Application for Water Rights of Charles W. Tidd, et al. v. David L. Frees, et al., No. 14SA234, Colo. Sup.; 2015 Colo. LEXIS 462).
