HistoryJuchem and Quellette Ditch in Water District #7 had priority #30 (May 28, 1863). It was filled with water diverted from Clear Creek, via south bank of Slough Ditch. Claimants in 1884 were John Juchem and Moses Quellette. Both were early farmers in the Arvada area and their properties show on Willet's "1899 Farm Map." State Engineers Records show transfer to Farmers High Line and Reno-Juchem Ditches, June 6, 1989.
