From The Durango Herald (Dale Rodebaugh):

Lake Durango, which acquired a long-troubled water company with a similar name two years ago, needs more water. La Plata West has a share of Lake Nighthorse water but no way to treat it and – as yet – no way to deliver it. Now with the grant-loan approved Wednesday by the state water board, [Lake Durango Water Authority] can build a pipeline from Lake Nighthorse to its treatment plant. It will get some of the potable water, with the rest reserved for La Plata West when it builds a delivery system. [La Plata West Water Authority] also no longer needs to find $4 million to build its own treatment plant.
