The Colorado City Board of Directors held a workshop at 6:00 pm, Wednesday, February 22, 2017, to a “standing room only” crowd of valley residents concerned about water quality among other district issues.

The workshop opened with a presentation by Josh Cook and Bob Reid of NOCO Engineering about water/wastewater treatment in Colorado City. “The water in in this area of Southern Colorado contains a lot of iron, causing discoloration and manganese, naturally occurring elements that are in higher concentrations during spring runoff,” said Cook. “The district uses chlorine dioxide in the treatment process because it is two and one-half times more effective than chlorine, reacts rapidly with water under treatment, and reduces unwanted by-products by as much as 80%,“ explained Cook.

After the formal presentation by NOCO Engineering, four community members made presentations. Claudia Piras told the three board members in attendance that she and her husband, Ken, were responsible for the original petition signed by some two hundred valley residents. She thanked the board for holding a special workshop allowing the community to comment on the water quality issue.
