Notice #9246 published in the Pinedale
Roundup on April 14, 2023

Dear Land Owners:
The Pine Creek Canal No. 1 Enlargement of the Lee Ditch (AKA Lee Ditch), which runs through or is adjacent to your property, is owned by the Pine Creek Ditch Association. Included in this ownership is a prescriptive easement on your property immediately adjacent to the ditch for the purposes of cleaning and maintaining the ditch. Some landowners do not understand that ditch rights extend beyond the banks of the ditch itself and construct improvements that encroach upon the easement area. This easement area extends for approximately fifty feet on each side of the bank of the ditch but may extend further where the ditch is above or on a slope. Excavation above or below the ditch which will endanger its integrity is not permissible even though such work may be more than fifty feet from the bank.
The Association does not permit encroachments onto its easement. If a landowner erects an improvement within the easement area that interferes with ditch access and cleaning, the Association must take legal action to force removal of that improvement. The Association prefers to be good neighbors and notify landowners to plan their developments such that there is no encroachment on the Lee Ditch easement.
If you have questions regarding these water rights or easement issues, please refer to the State of Wyoming Engineer’s Office website at: http://soswy.state.wy.us.
As a reminder, removal of water by individuals without legal water rights from the ditch by various means (pumps, siphons, ditches and various pipes) is illegal. The Pine Creek Ditch Association asks you to voluntarily remove any such equipment from the ditch as soon as possible. The ditch rider will remove such conveyances if encountered.
SHELTER PARK RESIDENTS PLEASE NOTE: Pine Creek No. 1 Enlargement of the Lee Ditch is a separate entity from the Orcutt Ditch. Please check your water right documents to ascertain if you have legal authorization to remove water from the Lee Ditch that runs through or is adjacent to your land in Shelter Park. We invite you to contact us if you have any questions.
Thank you for your cooperation.
The Pine Creek Ditch Association
Secretary ~ Leslie Hagenstein
