Negotiations begin for pipeline water

Posted By on Mon, May 24, 2010 at 3:00 PM

Negotiations between Colorado Springs Utilities and the Bureau of Reclamation kick off this week in Pueblo for a contract to store water in Pueblo Reservoir for the Southern Delivery System.


Chris Woodka, a reporter at The Pueblo Chieftain, gives a full report about the negotiations and what they mean.

Colorado Springs and its Southern Delivery System partners will begin talks with the bureau at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the third floor board room of the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center, 210 N. Santa Fe Ave.

A second session is planned at Colorado College on June 15.

"To operate SDS from Pueblo Reservoir, we must negotiate long-term contracts with the Bureau of Reclamation for water storage, conveyance and exchanges using the Reservoir," Utilities spokeswoman Janet Rummel told the Independent earlier this month.
