C.R.S. Section 37-87-110
Engineer may use force

The state engineer is authorized to use such force as is necessary to perform the duties required of him in section 37-87-109 and to have and exercise all of the powers conferred upon the division engineer by section 37-87-108. If, after any of such reservoirs have been examined by said state engineer, the owners thereof, or any other person, fills or attempts to fill them, or any of them, to a point in excess of the amount the state engineer has determined to be safe, then it is the duty of the division engineer of the district wherein such reservoir is located to proceed as directed by section 37-87-108. All direct, actual, and necessary expenses incurred in performing any action authorized by this section shall be recoverable by the state engineer from the owner of the affected reservoir and if not reimbursed may be collected by action brought by the state engineer in the district court of the county in which the reservoir, or part thereof, is located.
