On May 27, 1922, a petition was filed with the District Court, asking for the formation of a Conservancy District. The Court hearing on the petition was concluded on August 18, 1922, and on September 10, the Pueblo Conservancy District was declared formed by Judge Park. The Directors of the District, Chas. W. Lee, G. H. Nuckolls and W. F. Raber, were then appointed, followed shortly by the appointment of the Appraisers, W. D. Keen, E. D. Spruill, and Thos, Kelly.

The Appraisers of the District have been at work since their appointment in November, more
