Will the project continue in the phases currently designated outside of Phase 1?

The project will continue, but the area encompassed by the future phases of the project are yet to be determined. The Board is currently reviewing boundaries for the next phase of the project. Subscription costs for future phases can be developed as phase boundaries are determined and subscriptions for each phase will be accepted as each phase is defined. Subsequent phases may resemble the currently mapped phases, but expansion of the system could occur based on demand in an area that has significant density to achieve effective and manageable costs. A primary design impediment and corresponding additional costs will be challenging whenever the design includes crossing the La Plata River, or other streams or wetlands areas, as additional permitting and costs are required to comply in construction of pipelines across riparian or wetlands areas.
