After about 7 years of work Phase 1 will begin construction on the water system for Western La Plata County. All funding is in place with 1.2 million in grant from USDA thanks to the efforts of your board and Duane Dale of USDA out of Cortez. You can expect to see construction beginning within the next month. Williams Construction will be doing the pipelines and Great Plains Structure will be installing the 200,000 gal. water tank near Blue Hill. It is expected the construction will be completed by Nov. 2019 and then the water will flow.

- You should look for either a letter or email very soon telling what you need to be doing now to prepare for the pipeline
- You might start thinking about where you want your meter to be set. Depending on where you live some might need to decide by end of month while others it might be months from now.
- Keep looking at the Website as we will do our best to keep you informed as to the progress of the laying of the pipe.
- We will start a list of contractors on the website who show an interest in laying a pipeline from the meter to your house. We will not be recommending these contractors but listing for your convenience.
