Deadman Ditch

Description of irrigation work.

Retrieved 3 November 2017.

The original owners of the Windsor Reservoir are constructing a system of ditches in the mountains, about 47 miles west of their reservoir, which will greatly increase the supply available for storage. In 1902 they had completed and used the Sand Creek or Divide Ditch, which is 1 miles long and has a capacity of 250 cubic feet per second. It cost $1,500. The ditch diverts water from Sand Creek, a tributary of the Laramie River, and carries it over the divide into Sheep Creek, one of the small tributaries of the North Fork of the Cache la Poudre River. In 1901 the flow of Sand Creek at this point was measured and was found to vary between 6 and 240 cubic feet per second, and it is expected to furnish a good supply for storage in the Windsor Reservoir every year. In 1902, however, the Sand Creek Ditch did not at any time carry over 31 cubic feet per second and the total amount supplied by it was 60,700,000 cubic feet, or an amount equal to one-eighth of the capacity of the Windsor Reservoir. Water was run through the ditch from May 9 to July 10, inclusive, and from July 16 to 23, inclusive.

This supply drawn from the Laramie River will he reinforced by two other ditches, one of which, the Deadman Ditch, has been completed and will be used in 1903. It crosses Deadman Creek, a tributary of the Laramie River, and several other small creeks or draws, catching the flow of all of them and carrying it over the divide to Sand Creek, the water finally being taken by the Sand Creek Ditch. In 1903 the other of these ditches, called the Columbine Ditch, is to be constructed. It is planned to divert the flow of Columbine Creek, a tributary of Sand Creek, and discharge it into the North Fork of the Cache la Poudre River. It is 2 miles long and the Deadman Ditch is 5 miles long. It is estimated that these two will furnish about the same amount as the Sand Creek Ditch each year. There are no interests on the head waiters of these streams in Colorado, and therefore no objections to these diversions have been made in that State. But Laramie River and Sand Creek flow north into Wyoming, where both arc used for irrigation. This plan of increasing the available amount of water for storage in the reservoirs of the Cache la Poudre Valley at the expense of the irrigation interests in Wyoming has been complained of and a suit is now pending in the United States court.

Teds Place

Gavel to come down on historic Ted's Place

Found on GNIS, 1 November 2017.

Rocky Mountain News, September 2, 1989, p. 28:

Gavel to come down on historic Ted's Place

FORT COLLINS (AP) – Ted's place goes on the auction block today, offering the high bidder a chance to own one of the few private properties marked on Colorado maps.

The historic restaurant-gas station landmark north of Fort Collins, was opened on May 25, 1922, by Edward J. "Ted" Herring at U.S. 287 and Colorado 14.

According to local lore, Herring, who served as a state representative and senator for Larimer County, used his influence to get Ted's Place designated on the state map.

Ted's Place closed its doors when the last managers walked out in 1987. And a few months ago, its owner lost a lawsuit over control of the property.

At 10 a.m. today, the 6,000-square-foot building and the 0.94-acre plat it sits on will be auctioned off. There will be no minimum bid, and owner Stan Blehm will have the right to reject the highest bid.

“There seems to be some interest,” Blehm said Sunday during one of four open houses at Ted's. “I just want to see a strong person come in here that could make it work.”

As most locals attest, Ted's Place is more than a dot on the map – it has been the gateway to the Poudre Canyon and a haven for hungry travelers for 66 years.

The possibilities for Ted's Place are virtually limitless, said Tom Smith, the real estate broker handling the auction. Some interested buyers have suggested opening a bned and breakfast in a store, a tourist information shop, antique store, or reopening it as a restaurant. Others mentioned tearing the building down and starting fresh.

Several curious people dropped by Ted's Place on Sunday. They found a building showing signs of benign neglect. Ivy growing on the front of the building covers the "D" and "S" of "TED'S." Some windows have been broken by vandals, and all the tables, chairs and counter stools are gone; they were auctioned off in March 1988 by the Colorado Department of Revenue to recover $3,000 in back taxes.

New owners would need to be financially secure, motivated, and confident they could bring Ted's Place back from its current two-year slumber, Blehm said.

“That is one of the bad things about Ted's Place,” he said. “It's gotten a bad name and gone through several owners.”

Also included in Saturday's auction will be a seven-acre tract south of Ted's and a 35-acre tract in Cherokee Park north of Ted's, also owned by Blehm.

In addition to a building, the lot, two storage tanks, living quarters, a walk-in refrigerator, an electric sign at the intersection, a parking lot and a water tap, the new owner will acquire the name and location Ted's Place has banked on for six decades, Smith said.
