From the Tri-Lakes Tribune (Lisa Collacott):
The town of Monument unanimously approved four resolutions pertaining to water at its most recent board of trustees meeting.
To establish a contract with El Paso County Water Authority and make the name change to Pikes Peak Regional Water Authority.
To participate in the Colorado-Wyoming Project Participation agreement.
To sign on the Super Ditch Project Participation agreement.
To sign on the Southern Delivery System Project Participation agreement.
Monument has been paying dues to the EPCWA and PPRWA. Recently the two water authorities merged and stayed with the name of PPRWA. The dues to the water authority for 2011 will cost the town $2,950. “It’s a good thing for the town. We were paying dues to two authorities and there really was no need for two authorities,” said Rich Landreth, public works director…
The Board of Trustees also approved the resolution for the Super Ditch Participation Agreement. The Lower Arkansas Valley Water Conservancy District is considering a plan to lease water used for agricultural purposes to cities. The town of Monument has been part of the project for several years.
The final resolution approved was the Southern Delivery System Project Participation Agreement. The project would allow members to negotiate, as a group or individually, the delivery of water through the SDS with Colorado Springs Utilities.
