From The Fort Morgan Times (Dan Barker):

Wiggins has seen its municipal water grow more mineral-laden as the water table sinks, and it has been dropping steadily for the past few years all through the local water basin. For months, the council wrangled over whether or not to have the town build its own new water system, join up with the Morgan County Quality Water District or buy water from the city of Fort Morgan. Eventually, town council members decided the least expensive method would be to build its own system and started buying water and working on designs. Now they are waiting for the U.S. Department of Agriculture to approve a grant and/or loan package to get the project started.
