CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON AUGMENTATION POND

On August 3, Phase 1 construction began on the Huerfano County Water Conservancy District’s Regional Augmentation Facility/Pond. The facility is located on Sheep Mountain Ranch, which is a few miles northwest of Gardner, and it encompasses roughly 20 acres. Phase 1 of construction involves the removal of vegetation and overburden and preparing the site for a gravel operation. Huerfano County and the District developed an intergovernmental agreement that the County would remove the gravel present at the facility site, leaving a hole that will be finished as the pond. The county plans to begin mining the gravel around the beginning of September. The contractor for this project is Paul Morgan
