This story is crazy. Yet another misguided effort by Cherokee and a total lack of support from El Paso County. You would think that if Cherokee supplies 18,000 plus citizens with water that originates from the wells in this area that they would have filed law suites, tracked down the property owner, and hounded the State and County for an injuctive order or proof that the ponds are leagal... OR something?
Out one side of thier mouth, we hear Cherokee telling us how the water recycling plant, which still has no permit, is going to solve our water worries and that we should have no concerns about water quality becuse of the state of the art technology in the new facility, yet at the same time they fail to take simple effective action against folks polluting the environment and potentially the water supply just over the fence from our municipal wells. How can this be?
I was told that Cherokee's board president is a former employee at Diamond Wire and has a son-in- law or something like that still working there, and the board member knows the Chemist who was doing this so called "green technology" experienment that he failed to get a premit or approval for.
Is that true? Does Cherokee's board have a link to Diamond Wire?
It is high time for the City to annex tge Cherokee District or we need to sell it to a more professional water operator who can insure our supply and its quality.
Let someone more competant take over the water supply duties, becuase we are fed up with ten plus years of being water short and listening to false promises of water quantity and quality concerns, wile the budget grows, rates increase, and attoreys fee accumulate for no good reason.
