Snowmass: The new Ziegler Reservoir should meet the town’s supply needs at buildout


From the Snowmass Sun (Jeanne McGovern):

“It is an expensive process to build a reservoir, but we felt it was necessary to be prepared for a full build-out of the town,” said Rhonda Bazil, vice president of the Snowmass Water & Sanitation District board of directors, during a presentation before the Snowmass Village Town Council on Feb. 6.

According to Bazil’s report, the district created three scenarios for municipal demand based on levels of development: existing municipal demand with Base Village and redevelopment, district build-out, and build-out with reserves.

With Ziegler online, the district is able to meet the third standard, which assumes as much as a 110 percent build-out that “may result from additional redevelopment and infill” within the district.
