A bill to amend the Omnibus Public
Land Management Act of 2009 to
modify the terms of the Jackson
Gulch rehabilitation project in
Colorado, and for other purposes.
Colorado D.N.R and Mancos State Parks Concern.

The Department of Natural Resources first learned of your proposed
legislation in late April.  Shortly after we communicated to you, thorough
CPW SW Regional Manager our concern that any transfer of title of
land and features associated with the Mancos Project from the Bureau
of Reclamation to the District may impact CPW's ability to manage
recreation at Mancos State Park for the benefit of the public. We were
also concerned about how any transfer of title would affect existing and
future recreation infrastructure purchased by CPW and the Bureau.  
(We realize that it is likely not possible for the District to continue the
cost-share arrangement currently in place with the Bureau and CPW.
CPW is willing to look at other partnership opportunities with the District
in lieu of a cost-share.)

Here is our primary concern:
The legislation is silent to the future of the cost share btwn cpw and bor
to manage recreation on Mancos. CPW expects the water district
wouldn’t be able to take on the bor’s cost share. If the cost share goes
away CPW will not be able to continue to provide the recreation.
