Springs Utilities sets open house on water plan Nov. 2 at Mesa Road buildingThe Colorado Springs Utilities Integrated Water Resources Plan will be the subject of an open house Wednesday, Nov. 2 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
The location will be the Conservation and Environmental Center, 2855 Mesa Road.
“We will share about our water system, its challenges and opportunities, and our plan to meet our need into the future,” a press release states. “You can also share your ideas for our water future.”
Topics will include:
· Water system reliability
· Potential regional water service challenges and opportunities
· Water supply challenges and risks
· Opportunities to mitigate risks
· Tradeoffs between risk and costs
The Water Resource Plan was last updated in 1996. “We have seen a lot change since the last plan was completed,” the release quotes water planner Kevin Lusk. “Drought, fires, greater variability in supply and demand, and other factors have really challenged our water resources. And the future of our water supply system is equally uncertain. We have undertaken this planning process to address these challenges. It will set the direction for 50-plus years into the future with the goal of ensuring clean, safe and reliable water service for our customers."
