"Let us know what you think. What else are we going to get into today. Well hey not. Hey we're not gonna get into. Hey we're gonna get into water. And i guess you could say well john that makes a okay. There's a big battle going on. I don't know how big it is but it's at least something. That's out there here in greeley over water there's a petition that is asking the voters to consider changes to the way greeley's water resources are acquired managed and so on and as i began to read and we'll get into this a little more deeply as the morning goes by but here's here's what i found. There's a group called. save release. Water th this is all about the aquifer the terry ranch aquifer this is an idea that the town of greeley has come up with city of greeley. That i think is actually personally. I think it's a really cool creative idea. There's an aquifer under the terry ranch up on the wyoming border one point. Two million acre feet of water is in that aquifer aquifer i'm sure you know as an underground body of water you can drill down and you can get it out however let me put it in perspective. That's about f- over four times as big as all the water in horse tooth reservoir and horse tooth resorts pretty good sized lake that baby seven miles long and a mile or mile and a half wide at the widest. And even that much may maybe a mile if you're lucky back in one of the coast okay but nonetheless. That's a lot of water. That's a significant amount of water. It's about that same amount of what four four times as much. Water as in. boyd. Lake in boyd lakers you know is one of these sources of greeley water Greeley's had to lately because of the problem with the putter being polluted because of the runoff from the fire rim nelson to burn spots up there. They've had to actually not use water and before collins agree both have pretty good rights on the putin can use it because of the pollution just too hard to treat that water when it's full of stuff Certain such well the point being now he's been able to do some trades and get some water out of horse tooth and that's a good supply but as you probably know horse tooth. Water is not native to this side of the mountains. Horse tooth water is native to the west slope but it comes at wonderful tunnel into rocky mountain national park. That's what nine feet diameter levin point one miles long The atoms tunnel comes out of grand lake. Winds up estes. Park comes down to big thompson..

"But it's only a matter of time until one of those events happen in the shooter drainage and then you multiply everything times about ten in terms of its daily challenges. That is terrifying. And hopefully this will get people that are in the position to make these visionary decisions and actually stop things before they happen to the best of our ability. I mean mother nature we all know can be rather caprices. Hopefully they will do just that because The wildfires you talk about a trickle down effect pardon the pun but also affecting our water supply this year in many experts saying because of the amount of ashen debris. That's coming down the river getting into the reservoirs getting into intake in water. Treatment plants Well just throwing a stick in the spokes. And you've got many expert experts saying that this could continue not just this year but maybe for the next several years absolutely and you and i share a great love for that reservoir called horse tooth and fort collins is currently pulling its water supply out of course to Fort collins has rights on bought some of the water horse tooth and also in the pruder. Now greeley has rights on the peter and they also have rights on the big thompson. Project that they use to fill boyd lake so I'm pretty sure. I don't know this for a fact that the moment but i'm pretty sure for collins is pulling water from tooth for their Supplies here in town. Where right live in over ingredient where you are now. radio station. They're pulling that. Water out of boyd would be my guess right now and largely. I don't have an update on this. But i know was as of early july. You did have a greeley halting Drawing water from the cash laprud or actually greeley draws about forty five percent of its water from the polluter under normal circumstances. I don't know they expected to back from drawing river water from the poodle. But i i don't have the answer to that in. Greeley is in this trait position. Because they figured out the terry Bison ranch kerry ranch aquifer that is brilliant. I know there are people opposed but i love that one but we're at the mercy of what comes down the religious here Even the big thompson project can be pretty well. messed up. I guess you'd say bye. Bye floods it. Took a sifi. Now you know in seventy six goes over of the highway thirty four going up to best as part right there. It could interest to the canyon. That's led took decisive out. And there was no way across feed water from carter over into her till they got that six just goes.

Well, I was talking to a former co worker, and she said that she witnessed the whole Oh, no, He, uh he got disconnected somehow, man. Listen, if you're listening Please call us back. Can it call us back? If you're listening, man, you got disconnected by mistake somehow, and I will absolutely try to help you.

You are you May It might be too late for you, but we're going to find out. We're going to get back in touch with you with our expert. But bottom line if he said it wasn't work related. It takes more than that, especially if you were lifting and you were on the job. I mean, how do they say it's not work related? Did he give you an explanation for it? You did not, You know, I'm really tired of these work workers. Comp sucks. By the way, the problem with workers comp they call them. Here's what The joke is an independent medical examiner. They're anything but an independent medical examiner. These people are they they work for the insurance companies. It's ridiculous. Okay, So what I'd like to do is set you up on a call with one of our workers, Comp attorneys. And that's Cliff Ent ent in law and we'll get to the bottom of it. Meanwhile, anyone else listening Don't just take a quick answer. No, it's not work related. Delve deeper. What do you mean? It's not work related? How do you know it's not work related? You know, One doctor can't make that determination in one quick visit. Unless, of course, you know there's something there. That's different. You had a tumor on there or something pretty obvious and it predated. Today. And you weren't you know you can't directly tie it to a job Just because something happens while you're working somewhere doesn't make a job related, but when it comes to knees and shoulders and wrists Often it is work related, Andy Let's talk to you, Andy. What's happening with you? Um, well, I purchased a online pasa parks passed to get into the parks, Um, without paying a day pass, So it's an annual pass, right? And which and what part? What Parks? What package did you buy? Um, the Colorado Parks Boyd Lake, mainly, but but were you able? It doesn't. It doesn't open it up to Cherry Creek and the rest of them. I'm not sure about that. I I purchased online. I think it was just for Boyd Lake. How much did you pay? Some of the lakes are in a loved one. How much? $120 for the family passed. Okay, and what's the problem? I took the pass to Boyd. Um And, um, it was it was yesterday was Father's Day was an extremely busy day had to wait in line for a long time. An hour or so. Get up there and they told me they are not going to take my past because it It's not. Um I guess there was supposed to be some a little piece of plastic theory. You were supposed to put it in or something. They they never gave me. Well, What do you mean? What? What does that mean? What does the doesn't the past? Have a QR code on it or something? If it if it has a key, our code has a seed number. Has everything on it. Then why do they care if it wait, Wait. Why do they care if it's in plastic? I don't know. I think I was just given. They were giving me a really hard time. I wasn't I don't know what the deal was. There was no reason for it to be in plastic. I called Colorado part to ask them. Why did they rejected the past? They said there's no reason why they should have rejected the path they should have at the end. No reason they should have rejected it. That's true. So now what do you do? Yeah. So then I call I said, Well, if you guys are going to reject the path of then, um I just want my money back Then. If you guys can't accept this past that you sent me and they said they don't give refunds. Are you dealing with the state? Yeah, First of all right, Andy. They're not going to reject the past. I don't know what moron did it and why, But do you want the past if it can be used That's the reason I bought it. Yeah, I do hold, however, now that they had to go through this, I really don't even want to pass. Now. I just want I just want my money back and I'll just go Do I'll just do it day by day if I ask you That way. At least I know I can get into the park. Golly, hold on a second, so Right now. Um, did you call anyone about this? And when you called Where did you call? Do you have the name of the person who called? No, I didn't get the name of the person. I just called the, um the local parks and recreation or that parks and wildlife here in in Loveland. Okay, but it's the State Department, right. You went to Yeah. If you look at it, I'm going to have I'm going to have Deputy dollar over here, Take a call and see what the hell they're doing. But I don't know as far as a refund, if, in fact listen, here's the bottom line, though, if they'll honor the pass. I can see why they won't take a refund. Even though you had that unpleasant experience. Did you buy it.

"You. You mentioned a little bit atom this this business deals and interesting and it's drawn skepticism of wait a second. What the hell's going on here Walk us through a little bit more about put. The people's minds at ease with what this contract is all about sure. It is a unique contract instead of paying cash for this water were issuing credits to the seller and these credits are redeemable by developers to meet a raw water dedication and get a water tap It is a different way of doing it but in no way are we entering into some kind of long-term business arrangement with them At closing we get the water and they get the these credits You know there's a some concern that we're going to be in some kind of partnership that this may be a public private partnership it's not. It's just a different way of paying for the water. Yeah and it's innovative right. And it's new and new in innovation. It can be scary right. And i think that's where you know. Some of the skepticism can be mad. But you guys have done a phenomenal job With pushing information out there how the webinar go. You guys had the webinar last night correct. How did that go yet. Tanner webinar went well. we engaged more than sixty people. they ask a lot of questions. we give an overview of the due diligence and update on some of the things. We've been researching reload relative costs and water quality and treatment capacity and long range planning around the project and then took qna for more than an hour. And i think we relatively Effectively resolved some technical questions. Some business questions and we made sure that we provide people the opportunity to engage with us further following the webinar. So they can email us call us and we'll follow up with them. No and that transparency. That'll dispel a lot of this. But one of the other things that i find reassuring and i think that other people should as well the community support. I mean the the chambers throwing their support behind this. There's a lot of people in the community that say this needs to happen. That's right We've collected a number of influential supporters And some of them from a very technical basis some of our geologists and hydrogen and then others are business groups. They understand the impact of this To affordable housing until the long range economy for greeley we recently secured support from the poodle learning center and the no co hba both important groups that have very different perspectives roles responsibilities and outlooks about the future of the city but both influential groups are important to support the project right and when you can get people who don't necessarily agree on ton can agree on something that's always a good thing to do So we talked about. It's new it's innovative How how did. How did you guys get to really get to this and say this were taken this. We're doing this. Wow did this guy out of that happen right. So we were in the permitting process for milton. Seaman reservoir enlargement for fifteen years and as we pursue that it it appeared that maybe getting that permit was going to be unlikely and so we really dived into looking for other alternatives and by happenstance it was the same period of time when the seller of this project was conducting extensive diligence of their own to prove that this was a safe and reliable water supply and so we started engaging with them even before they had dug the last of their test wells So it was a bit serendipitous. In the in the time of when a plan comes together And grill is really in a unique position to make use of this water. We have infrastructure that spans all the way from west of fort collins to East greeley and we're able to use that infrastructure to get the water from the ranch and to the ranch and that makes very unique in the northern front range and it seems like with whatever water project comes up. There's always People who have concerns about it You know my mind goes over to the nist project The that for collins is working through and larimer counties working through and and you know that that is a hall. I mean they talk about fifteen years on the milton semen. I think they've been gone for twenty odd years of that to these things take time. It's not like somebody just woke up one morning and said you know that sounds like a good idea today by a bunch of water because i mean that's a good idea any day but these things take time right. We make investments year in year out in Water supply making sure. We're being planned for our future but for these big storage projects right. The new process the investment in time is substantial We continue to work on the windy. Gap firming project which is more than twenty years old and has had federal permit since twenty seventeen and is not yet out of the ground due to delays in construction and and federal litigation. Over the permitting so We we know that it's an arduous difficult path to get one of these storage projects. Done and terry ranch offers us a pretty unique opportunity to do that without some federal permitting. But we're trying to plan for fifty years in in advance and we've got to start twenty to thirty years in advance to get there because of how long these projects can take right. Oh and that's something. That really has been pretty good about is planning for the future with the water and it is vital especially with this expected boom to continue to continue to do that yet of the other aspects to why this deal works for greeley is it's forefathers have made consistent investments in water supply going back to moving water supply up to bellevue west of fort collins acquiring collartoo thomson buying into the boyd lake and lake level and system in the nineteen sixties many of these historic investments built supply a really robust portfolio of surface water. That means we can do delek terry ranch. That's not going to yield water tomorrow and and we have time to develop it in many of our neighboring communities the water they by tomorrow they needs to go in the pipe the day after right there. You don't wanna you don't wanna put yourself up against the gun like that right. So are robust portfolio. An excess supply allows us to develop this time this project over time being very careful incremental about how we make investment. No i want you to expand a little bit about The the water portfolio. That has now i. It is pretty diverse. it really is. It's really the envy of the northern front range Greeley has enough water in its portfolio. That on a wet year we rented last year. Twenty thousand acre feet back to the agricultural community We plan for the dry years. Though we plan for the drought Right now we have a adequate surface supplies To meet a designed drought. And we'll have that water out to twenty forty We have water. That comes from the shooter the big thompson the colorado river and the laramie river. We treat that water treatment plants and we get to our customers through over six hundred miles of pipe. It it just blows my mind. How much goes into this You talked about the spot up above around. Bellevue the wildfires. Obviously it was a big concern. Did did that have an impact and and what what process is is being taken with that it will have an impact I mentioned the watersheds. We collect water from all four of them burned this past year. The two largest fires in colorado history burned our watersheds. We haven't seen impacts yet. But we will after a rain Shed a lot of sediment nutrients come down river and we'll absolutely be able to treat that but increase our treatment costs and puts our infrastructure at risk. Some of our reservoirs may fill in with sediment be very costly to dredge sediment out and that's one of the reasons We'd like terry ranch. Is that its immune from drought ryan and wildfires and such That water is not going anywhere in a drought. So this project again. we're talking with jokers. The deputy director of water resources and shawn chambers director of greeley. Water and sewer was there a moment throughout this process. As as this is building up that you thought you know. Maybe that's that's too big of a deal. May what were your first concerns. And how do they get answered as.
