Lake nighthorse open house

Durango, CO:  Residents are invited to an open house at City Hall to learn about the project to build a pipeline from Lake Nighthorse to the city’s water-treatment plant at Terminal Reservoir.

The event will take place from 4-6 p.m. May 1 at City Hall, 949 East Second Ave. The city’s water utilities division is in the early stages of designing the pipeline. The project is expected to take several years to complete, and the city of Durango is inviting members of the public to attend the event at City Hall to meet the project team and learn more about the proposed pipeline. The event will also be livestreamed.

"It's important for the public to attend the open house because this is a significant project that will impact the water supply for Durango and the surrounding areas,” said Justin Elkins, utilities manager for the city of Durango. “We want to keep the community informed and gather feedback throughout the design process to ensure that the pipeline is designed to meet the needs of our community. This is an opportunity for residents to learn more about the project and have their voices heard." 

Attendees will have the opportunity to view preliminary maps and speak with project team members about the pipeline and the importance of water in the Southwest. The city of Durango encourages all members of the community to attend and provide valuable input for this critical project.
