Creation of subdistricts
(1)Notwithstanding the organization of the district provided for in this article, public irrigation districts organized under article 4 of chapter 149, CRS 53, and irrigation districts organized under articles 41 and 42 of this title, and any other form or organization designed or intended to acquire, construct, or maintain reservoirs, ditches, and similar works for irrigation or other beneficial purposes under any law of the state of Colorado or of the United States, may be organized to cover and include areas within the southwestern water conservation district and may likewise embrace territory within that district and partly out of the district. Whenever in their opinion such form of organization will help promote the local interests or accomplish improvements for any part of said district, the board of directors may recommend the organization of any such type of organization.
(2)In addition to such forms of organization, whenever in the opinion of the board of directors of said district it is feasible and necessary that ditches, canals, reservoirs, or other works which benefit only a part of the district should be constructed, a local improvement district or subdivision, or as many of such local improvement districts as may be necessary, may be created. Such local improvement district, when organized under the provisions of this article, shall be designated as “Water Users’ Association No. .... in the Southwestern Water Conservation District”, or as “Special Improvement District No. .... in the Southwestern Water Conservation District”. Each subdistrict shall be numbered consecutively as created or organized. The board of directors, the engineers, attorneys, secretary, and other officers, agents, and employees of the district, so far as it may be necessary, shall serve in the same capacity for such subdivision or subdistricts. A contract and agreement between the main district and the subdistrict may be made in the same manner as contracts and agreements between two districts.
