From the Republican River Water Conservation District (Deb Daniel) via The Yuma Pioneer :
The Republican River Water Conservation District will be hosting the public dedication ceremony of the Compact Compliance Pipeline on Thursday, August 16, beginning at 7 p.m.
The location of the ceremony will be at the outfall structure near Yuma County Road SS east of Laird.
On July 14, 2011, during a quarterly meeting, the RRWCD Board voted to build the pipeline in an effort to assist Colorado in complying with the Republican River Compact. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on August 29, 2011, near the pipeline collection tank location.
GEI Consultants, an engineering firm from Denver, has designed the pipeline, and Garney Construction, headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, was selected as the general contractor. Construction of the pipeline started in early September 2011.
Funding for the compact compliance pipeline has been provided through a loan from the Colorado Water Conservation Board and from water use fees paid by well owners throughout the Republican River Basin in Colorado.
Speakers during the ceremony include: Congressman Cory Gardner, John Stulp, Special Advisor to Governor Hickenlooper on Water Issues, Dick Wolfe, State Engineer with the Colorado Division of Water Resources and Dennis Coryell, Chairman of the Republican River Water Conservation District.
The ceremony will conclude with opening the main-line valve and delivering water into the North Fork of the Republican River.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Transportation to the ceremony will be provided by the District. If you wish to attend the ceremony, please notify the District so ensure seating.
