Water districts to present Dry Gulch Project overview

The Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District and San Juan Water Conservancy District will host a public presentation of the Dry Gulch Project on Monday, Feb. 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Pagosa Lakes Vista Clubhouse.

The presentation will cover all aspects of the project, including revised future growth and water demand projections, project infrastructure, planned reservoir size, project financing and Capital Investment Fees and plans for reservoir public use.

The districts have worked with project engineers and financial consultants since early October to refine projections of growth, costs and financing.

Following the presentation, the districts’ board members, PAWSD staff, districts’ counsel, project engineers and Tom Pippen of BBC Consulting will be available for a question and answer session.
