A very joyful group of 40 people were at the ground-breaking ceremony that was held on Friday, Oct 19, 2018 at the Breen Community Building and Kikel Family Ranch. Roy Horvath was the moderator for the ceremony and gave an overview of the project. Mardi Gebhardt gave an overview of the funding sources. See details of the funding on Phase 1 page here.
Representatives from USDA, TBK Bank, ALPWCD, LPWCD, family members of Kikel Ranch and Ute Mountain Ute Tribe each spoke. Mark Wing of the UMUT giving the opening and closing blessing. We are very grateful for their participation in our ceremony!
It has been 11 years since the formation of LPWWA so it has been a long persistent process by many different agencies and individual LPWWA board members over these many years.
CELEBRATION TIME! Save the date of Saturday, November 17th, 2018 from 11:00 AM TO 3:00 PM for a Open House/construction party. More detail will be forth coming in the next couple weeks.
