Q: What are the general conditions of the roads, what kind of vehicle would you recommend?
A: The highways and paved roads are well maintained all year. County graveled roads can get muddy, but not bad at all, and are actually easier to drive in the snow. Gravel gives you more traction than black top. An all wheel or four wheel drive is best for a vehicle. Anything from a Subaru to a one ton truck works fine.
Q: Who is responsible for clearing snow to the property line?
A: For most parcels, the county maintains the county roads. Most ranchers maintenance the gravel roads to their ranch, you might need to blade or blow your portion of the community road in winter, subdivisions don’t have road maintenance. If you don’t you won’t get to your property during some parts of the year.
Q: What options are available to land owners for a water source?
A: Most of the time you have to drill a water well.
Q: Why are most of the properties I’ve seen around 35-acres?
A: In 1972 Colorado law makers passed a law that required, from that point on, residents to have at least 35 acres if they wished to apply for and receive a domestic well permit. Therefore, no new parcels of less than 35 acres are allowed to drill a domestic water well without special approval.
Q: What is the average depth for most successful water wells?
A: In some areas, depths can range from 50 to 300 feet, while another you can hit water at 20 feet. So on average its about 75 to 150 feet for a well with average and production of 5 gpm.
