From The Fort Morgan Times (Dan Barker):

The new members and remaining incumbents took a long, intense look at the status of the water project, focusing on the projected timeline and budget. They also set a date for a workshop on all the water issues for Wednesday, April 25 at 6 p.m. at the town hall. The public is invited.

Tim Holbrook of Industrial Facilities Engineering, the company overseeing the project, gave the board an overview of the project. Board members had a chance to look at some photos of construction and were invited to take tours of the various parts of the construction.

The augmentation ponds are completed and starting to fill up, said Wiggins Town Administrator Bill Rogers. That water is used to offset the effects on the South Platte River of drilling for water in its basin and sending it to Wiggins, Holbrook explained.
