No Charges Filed For Millions Of Gallons Of Missing Water In El Paso County

No charges will be filed in connection with more than 2 million gallons of water that went missing in El Paso County.

The Gazette reports that Thursday's announcement by the 4th Judicial District Attorney's Office marks the end of a monthslong investigation into the city of Calhan's handling of its water system.

A director of the Upper Big Sandy Ground Water Management District said in May that nearly 2.5 million more gallons of water was pumped from wells than was documented as sold in 2014.

The missing water dates back to when Calhan's board of trustees had a handshake agreement with bulk water users that allowed users to take water from hydrants and pay for it later.

Details of the state's investigation were not immediately available Thursday.
