New Dry Creek Carrier
Water Source: South Boulder Creek
This ditch is a bit of plumbing that takes South Boulder creek water over to ditches on Dry Creek. It does not have its own water right. Rather it transports water for other ditches, and they are the ones with rights to South Boulder Creek water. The Dry Creek ditches together maintain the New Dry Creek Carrier Ditch. Originally, this ditch flowed through land now covered with Baseline Reservoir. When the reservoir was built, the New Dry Creek Carrier was re-routed. Cottonwood #2, Leyner Cottonwood, Davidson-Dry Creek, Andrews Farwell, and Lewis H Davidson ditches all use the New Dry Creek Carrier.
