"I always give credit. Where credit is due but brian is. I mean i'll tell you what he is. Just the expert musical maestro but every once in a while i come up with some pretty good ones though. That was a nice one. Cute it up though so he gets all the credit all right all right so let's talk a little bit about that night work on i twenty five. Yeah so you know. It's a lot of Similar things that we've talked about as i was looking through the the numbers of of changes that we're gonna have this week. It's really a face back to say that if you were driving on i twenty five any night this week you are probably going to get narrowed down to one lane at some point And some of the on ramps off ramps are gonna be closed during certain nights And so we will have Our mobile boards up to tell people about those in advance but You know a lot of people are planning that far ahead So do check co trip dot org before you go and That'll probably be your best chance But really anytime this week on. I twenty five from nine pm to five. Am the next morning We will be having some work going We're gonna have it down at fifty six around prospect around character there's a lot of Different shifts around thirty four So yeah just understand that a lot of that work is going to be shifting. the nice part about this is the reason for all of those shifts is. They're starting to move some of that barrier So that means that. They're shifting into new alignments You know We've talked about highway thirty. Four of that entire inner change Actually requires seventy four different stages of traffic flow During that work. And that's you know. Obviously we're we're building two new bridges while taking down to bridges and All while keeping traffic flowing at the same time so that that's where you get. All of those. Traffic ships needed that. So every one of these traffic ships is one more step closer to getting all finished. So that's good that's good news But it will be at a if you happen to drive the in the evening. This week wants to talk to. I had to come across this piece. I believe it was out of out there. Colorado talking about in touch about this in the past but it's been a while Those wildlife mitigation underpasses Or that underpass. On i twenty five underpasses along the i twenty five gap between monument and castlerock. This has colorado parks and wildlife and nounce the completion of those four wildlife specific underpasses. This is all part of a larger wildlife mitigation project involving cdot and colorado parks and wildlife. That actually got underway in two thousand sixteen. Yeah so this is pretty exciting They already have a picture of a bear using it. So that's a good thing. I guess But you know this is actually kind of part of a larger project that we have throughout the state and you know We just completed that project up For us on. Thirty six between lions and estes park and that actually included to wildlife underpasses And we're already seeing that animals are using them. So you know the the critters would much rather avoid cars just like you would rather avoid critter hitting your car and That the so the good part is is that they are using that the one down on that stretch that you're talking about i believe is also part of the south gap project And so That's very similar to what we're going to be doing here on. I twenty five there at The poodle river crossing. And so what we've done is we. We've raised that bridge and you can see that bridge going in now when you drive on. I twenty five You can see that bridge on On the east side of the road significantly higher than where we were before And that is going to allow not only for the poodle river trail connection to happen. But we're also that's also going to be A wildlife corridor and so I'm sure we will have cameras in there. Watching what critters go through as well as the all the all the bicyclists and pedestrians who go through the trail completes but The nice the nice part about this is is. It's it's similar to you know we've talked about what we did up in the in the kenyan for the floods where we kind of we we wanted mother nature and the road store together so we pulled the road away from the river. This is also getting mother nature and the roads to work together by getting the getting getting Wildlife the place to be able to cross and be able to move around while not interfering with Vehicles which tends to be not good for either the vehicle or the critter so This is a win win for everybody. You are the master of understatement. They are now apparently. Colorado parks and wildlife has been tracking wildlife vehicle collisions on that. I twenty five gap project found that there have been around. Two hundred animals representing sixteen different species hit since twenty seventeen. So it's pretty cool that you you build these crossings you know if you build it they will come and it's kind of like hey boo. Let's go this way exactly. And and i.

"To have four lanes of traffic under twenty five so on four twenty five so yeah. It's gonna be nice but it's been a big one and then This weekend we started or this. Friday actually We start each seven month closure of kept road. That's my is seven months now. It's only a month longer than was originally anticipated. That's about what we were looking at. I mean i think they do. A little Scottie from star trek planning where they pad that a little bit just for weather in anything that might come up so we do have Some wiggle room in there. But the idea is that we can get. If we close that we can get The bridge torn down and the new one. Put up along with a new roundabout everything back in place By about may twenty twenty two so That's gonna be a big change for a lot of folks It's kind of one of those bridges that You know it's mostly a neighborhood kind of a bridge Some people use that as their access to get across. I twenty five but it's also a big bicycling one and so that's going to be the advantage to. This is one in this bridges complete It will be wide enough and safer for bicyclists to get across Which will allow Folks to do the poodle river trail That's kind of how people have connected Teesside's of the poodle river trail But we will also have a The trail going underwrite twenty five up there at the poodle rubert So that'll be another change. That will be happening with project. Well okay now i have. This is a bit of a trigger for me. Not because they don't work but because we don't know how to use them. But apparently according to moslem heart the colorado and work includes the addition of yet another roundabout on the west side of i twenty five at the intersection of character in the west frontier. It's real i know. I need to repeat the mantra roundabout save time. Roundabout save time roundabouts. Work save lives as well. There has never been a fatality around the house. So that is a you know as compared to almost any kind of other intersection so that that is definitely a safety factor that one in particular is You know like. I said it's mostly A lot of residential use in their There's also there's a campground back in that way on that people use so It is going to be a roundabout but it should make a lot of the movement through there actually quicker and safer so I think that I do hear you and we hear it every time we're putting around but Once we get people ba- learn how to drive and we'll be five all right and if you notice that predicated that comment because i understand that yeah. There is historical precedence here. Roundabouts do work. I am amazed. I have to admit it wasn't a shot. Believe me but i am amazed because the way people drive in roundabouts camp believed that there haven't been fatalities in roundabouts because so many people just don't get it. Yeah you know I think you know the the the thing that about them as it does require a slow down. And so you know and you're not getting even if you do have an accident like some what's this call them inexperienced drivers around about ten to stop in the middle of around about whether making their turn do that. That's not how this works. Please food that does happen. I mean what you get is a. You'll get a fender bender. You'll get you know a rear end. sender better. You don't get item packed collision. Those kinds of things that really can can be very dangerous. So yeah yeah it's one of those that Not the best but I it does help us get traffic club. Yeah what's amazing is. I think i had the opportunity years and years back. This is the broncos played in london. So you now far back. I'm going i. We had rented a car. The first roundabout i ever drove in was going the wrong way on the wrong side of the car. I strongly recommend not doing that around here. No no no. I'm talking about the traffic flow in london. And it's also using to begin with. But i mean you talk about doubling down on the fear factor. I was going to use another word. You know where. I was like very much to a the one thing that i think is interesting about. The european roundabout is people are used to driving continually circling until they find their opening great. Yes just great thing because you know what happens in the roundabout said i see around here. long has a bunch of two lane roundabouts and people freak out if they are on the inside the inside and they can't get to the outside loop to exit and they just purchased through and like or you just go one more circle around danger i. It's really that complicated and i. It's interesting. I'm working with my girlfriend's son. Who is just going to drive. And that's gonna one thing. We actually drove around around about. We took six circles just to show him you. I mean it's not like the earth is flat and you're going to run out of road to lamidi will ensue. The other thing that. I noticed about those roundabouts in london. I swear there must have been eight lanes and they not slow down. Things were moving quickly moving quickly. But they're not. You know the the nice part is they're all moving in the same direction so you're not getting that direct site impact. If there was an accident that that would happen in there so that there are some No matter what it's it's a better system to get through. But i don't disagree. We just need some remedial driver's ed. I believe that the us and and i i for i from what i've seen driving. Teachers are actually doing a very good job with teaching the younger generation. How to do it so that was and that is so cool that you took that young one out and showed him that. If you can't get into that outside lane you don't panic. You don't slam on your breaks. You don't despair you just go around in a circle again. It's pretty. We've got some snow. Prep work on.

"And impairment of the local economy There's an organization called save greeley's water. They've submitted petitions for ballot initiative that would ask voters whether water sales exchanges subrogation trades or leases or more than five years by the city. Should i be required. Undergo a comprehensive engineering study before being taken to the greeley voters. Another ballot initiative would ask voters whether the purchase or leasing as well as providing of any groundwater and recycled wastewater should undergo a similar process. Well this sounds like they've got enough signatures they Most have at least thirty one. Oh one turned in forty three thousand one hundred one. They turned in four thousand two hundred. They're probably valid and it'll make the ballot. But here's the problem with this thing. And i agree with the city of greeley that this is a very troublesome ill fought in. Ill advised piece of legislation Here's why water is something that is really a property right We in the whole citizenry. Some of his own water some of us do not those who own it make it available to those of us who don't have it we can rent it or we can buy it from our city treated so that we can drink it and so on these water rights though are really important here in colorado The i got involved in this thing. And i couldn't believe that i went to the website of this outfit called save grease water. It turns out. They have put a document on their website of something that i wrote as an opinion piece for the fort collins colorado and in two thousand fourteen and i have yet understand what it is that i wrote that they think is important enough to put it there because i never mentioned greeley in what i wrote. I was writing about halligan reservoir. Now those of you who understand the way the putin works right up at what they call gateway park which used to be the old fort collins treatment plan that's now turned into fort collins municipal park up there That's where the north of the puzder comes into the main stem. The north fork coming from areas up higher. Oh even around beaver meadows that that whole area in that part of the county It all runs incomes together right there and from that point on you've got the poodle river greatly enhanced as it were by the north fork but before the water gets through the north fork into the main stem. There are two dams up there. One is called seaman reservoir. The others called halligan. Reservoir city of fort collins owns halligan reservoir. The cd agree on seaman. And there are discussions all the time. About how those two water rights that fill those reservoirs on the north fork work together and and that's fine. I mean it's it's all good that they have those water rights. But here's the point of this whole issue of water law. It has very complex. It's based on decrees and so on In the piece that i wrote and let me see if i can grab it here. I called it. Halligan hassle could lead to water fight and this was back in two thousand fourteen. Let me just quote to you from what i wrote. Then you can see what you think this may have to do with what this saved. Really water organization is trying to do with their ballot issue. I start out. Mark twain is often quoted. Liquor is for drinking. Water is for fighting given the loss of one thousand nine hundred five conditional water right to thirty three thousand four hundred sixty two acre feet of water on in the north fork of the poodle river due to the city. Waters lawyers failure to file a required report. It seems to me that some kind of a fight could ensue. Well yes the. These lawyers did not file in a timely way to preserve a water right and as a result. A nineteen eighty-five conditional decree that for colin zone. Suddenly became a two thousand thirteen decree. And according to this story by kevin dugan who's no longer with the colorado embiid a good guy and a good reporter he talked about how this could actually diminish the value of that water. But it's all talking about fort. Collins water in halligan reservoir. It's not talking about anything to do with greeley's water He he described what happens in colorado water rights in. This is a very very important thing to understand if you're into water and you know what i'm talking about if you don't listen because this is how it works and it's described as and this is what i put in my in my story It's compared to people with different size bowls getting in a line based on the year of their claim to receive water from established source in. It's kind of like fillon. Fillon their their bucket The people who are in the front of the line get their bucket completely filled to whatever size there bucket. Is they get it all. Then as you work your way down the line to people with a less senior right to that water they may or may not get their bucket full as a matter of fact that the end of toward the end of that line everybody at the beginning of the line with the senior rights their book at full there is somebody there who's going to get a portion of their bucket full and everybody from that point in the line on gets nothing. The water is not divided equally by everybody in the line. What it is. It's put their according to their right in their date. And so having an eighty five contri- conditional decree would be better than a two thousand thirteen but those are both so down. The road so to speak in terms of decrease water decrees began in colorado in the eighteen sixties in actually greeley's in a good spot because on the puzder greeley has some water rights. That are the very most senior among the most senior water rights on the poodle river cough for collins tests. I'm pretty good ones to. There's are not as good as greeley's but but they're still good rights and they get filled up. Most of the time well halligan. Reservoir was being discussed as an possibility to expand it. And at this time. When i wrote this in two thousand fourteen the army corps of engineers who determined all this stuff. We're in the process of doing environmental impact. Statement on the expansion of halligan by fort collins and Also the north putin irrigation company. They use that water as well and have rights. They're nowhere in this story. Do i ever see greeley. Do i ever say semen. Do i ever say anything. And i end the story that i wrote this little wilson opinion piece actually and i said then there is the statement by colorado. There's the water resources. David nettles in an email to the colorado quote there could be periods when in one thousand nine hundred five would be an effect but not two thousand thirteen right but that will happen a few days a year at most. He's trying to say that even though these lawyers screwed up and didn't file on time and had to come back and get a lesser decree that this is so far down the list that it may not be even an issue. And then i go back to my my point that One thing's for sure waters for fighting the so. I guess what. Maybe these save the greeley water. People are talking about or that. They're just fighting. Like i said everybody would but we have fought over water historically in northern colorado ever since my great grandpa dug a ditch to get water out of the little thompson river when he homesteaded near birth. I mean it's just been going on. That's what we have. Water rights are major and the price of water in northern. Colorado has just escalated immensely immensely. But we've got people with thought forethought foresight who created water rights for us. Here we've got the big thompson project. Could you imagine what would happen today if somebody said. Yeah joe this is a great idea. We're going to go over on the west slope and we're going to pipe some water all the way from grand lake and we're going to build two reservoirs downstream from grand lake so that we can pump the water back and keep grand lake full all the time with the runoff that runs into those other reservoirs grabby in shadow mountain to be specific and then we are going to drill. Dig a tunnel right underneath rocky mountain national park. It's going to be over eleven miles long. Len point one levin point two miles long. it's going to be nine feet in diameter. You could drive a jeep through there. And they do by the way I wanted to that trip but nonetheless how would that. How would that do today. If somebody said yeah. We're going to do that. But those are the people here in greeley to bmw far for instance. Who is a hero in my mind to make this a place that we can all live because without that water that comes through the big thompson without doubt water that comes down the polluter without that water that saved up as high as joe wright reservoir halligan reservoir seaman reservoir on the putter in. It's different Tributaries we we would be in bad shape. Folks here we. We couldn't live her. We just couldn't live and all the fields that you see out there that are so lush and green and growing things that we can eat would be no more. They couldn't exist. You can't even grow at decent. Greece graph greece grass grass cropping in colorado with the with the moisture that we have so anyway. Yeah waters for fighting. But i'll tell you what you need to fight against. You need to fight against his goofy idea. That's being put forward By save greeley's water then this is all based on the aquifer up in the terry ranch and it. This is a brilliant idea by the way to have the terry ranch aquifer come into the greeley system. It's it's genius genius do it. Let do it whatever these guys want. Don't vote for it. That's just my suggestion and I'm kind of set to go here. We're going to be back here. Just a few closing words right here on mornings with gail john clarkin northern colorado's voice one. Oh three one thirteen ten. Kfi greeley here mornings with kale weekdays. Six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. It's roosevelt dan. Thirteen days thirteen.

Kfi k b with you today as we come up toward the oh my goodness nine o'clock hour. John clarke had a great time with you. What one of the folks from records in loveland These people are the people you want to see for all your firearms. Training gun supply needs that. They've got this great gun giveaway on september. Eighteenth you want to check that out at records in loveland what you wanna do is give them a call at nine seven zero six one seven two four nine one. Anybody who's given away guns think that's pretty cool. I would either checked out. It's also been a great honor to be here today for gail I just love coming here sitting i.

I mean you just left everybody in the huge mass. And i think it's going to cost a lot of money and even more importantly a lot of lives. It's kind of sad but anyway just wanted to remind you that i get to come in here. I get to sit at this microphone. And i'm just grateful that you're listening much. Remind you that this is further.

"It affordable and especially when we see the continued growth of it's it's going to be It's going to be more of a difficult task if you don't start planning ahead right now and my biggest thing on this this water ballot measure water is not an easy An easy subject to just say. Oh yeah. I know exactly where the water comes from. I know there's a lot of people think that maybe but for me one of the more concerning things is that if this does go first of all it's gonna be special a special elections every time that comes out two hundred thousand dollars to do every one of those and then we're putting this into the hands of people who are not water experts and you know there's a lot of times i say yeah. Let the people decide but there's a lot of people. I've seen it firsthand. That just don't understand the water system. That's gotta be concerning to you guys as well who spent years and years and years in this industry i mean. Just look at the staff at greeley water and then the experts we bring in we have decades of higher education experience. We have even longer working in the field. You know personally. I've i've been working in colorado water for well over ten years and i don't pretend to know nearly all there. It is complex And that's one of the reasons we rely on a water and sewer board that between them have one hundred and forty years of experience Making these water decisions. That's why we bring in experts to give their recommendations and it's that formula that has resulted and making very good decisions that have yielded results well into the future. So let's talk about the city of thornton here There there's some sort of idea out there that greeley's given the city of thornton capacity and the poodle river system. Is that true. No it's not true. tanner You know we had some discussions when thornton ran into a roadblock county We talked with those folks about the pipelines greeley has in our long-term need for those pipelines..

"Now adam jokers the deputy director water resources in sean chambers director. Really water and sewer. Thank you guys for coming back. It seems like we can't go three or four months without some sort of water controversy here in the city of greeley but Hey just gives us an excuse to have you guys on a talk. So thank you both for coming in. It's great to be back. Yeah thanks for having a standard. So let's talk about this. This is something that i've talked about on this program At great length this proposed water ballot measures Now my first question is is this the same group that tried to step in and stop the terry ranch ed project as well. Yeah it is the same group. So they're known as save greeley water and there are special interest group. That was very vocal opposition to the terry ranch project we. We produce a tremendous volume of due diligence. Professional engineering scientific study had that third party reviewed and when that wasn't enough for them they've pivoted and trying to use the legislative process to change the rules. And how we utilize water resources in the city agreement. Well and i remember actually ryan was driving by the the the city of greeley offices and they were they the protests or something like that going on correct ryan others a of protesters and they through like two or three pamphlets in my car. So you love that. As you're driving by hitting the face of the pamphlet that that sounds Very safe so this is the same group again. They failed to Get this stopped from From going through the first time trying to take a different route here so wh what is the. What is their main argument as to why this anything needs to be happening here on the on on the ballot that the people should be talking on not experts. Yeah what they're trying to do. This time is rewrite the greeley's City charter which is like our constitution and make it harder for really to add new sources of water such as terry ranch Also make it harder for us to buy or lease long-term water that we rely on to build our portfolio server growing city right I think their main concerns stem back to terry ranch. there's concern about the water quality even though we've proven it beyond a shadow of a doubt that adam there is uranium and a lot of water. Tanner tom really is excellent. At is treating water. Yeah we've been doing it for over one hundred years. She goes like winning award for that. A couple of years ago we have. We have best tasting water in the country and Just like all of our existing sources. We will treat terry ranch water to be safe and great tasting. Yeah well and that's the thing and this is something that Coming off of what we saw in twenty twenty with all the fires right that we had the camera. Peak fire diverse water portfolio for growing community. Is maybe the most important thing to have. Yeah absolutely you know. Our team and our board have been planning for uncertainty for decades. We have one of the most robust and resilient water systems up and down the front range and and through drought and through wildfire. It's only robust and redundant infrastructure that allows us to deliver alternate sources of supply to the treatment plant to treat it to a high standard and the customers never known the difference that we've been recovering from wildfire or facing drought and so that robust resilient system is fundamental to our ability to keep service uninterrupted. And keep it affordable and especially when we see the continued growth of it's it's going to be It's going to be more of a difficult task if you don't start planning ahead right now and my biggest thing On this this water ballot measure water is not an easy An easy subject to just say. Oh yeah. I know exactly where the water comes from. I know there's a lot of people think that maybe but for me one of the more concerning things is that if this does go first of all it's gonna be special special elections every time that comes out two hundred thousand dollars to do every one of those and then we're putting this into the hands of people who are not water experts and you know there's a lot of times i say yeah. Let the people decide but there's a lot of people. I've seen it firsthand. That just don't understand the water system. That's gotta be concerning to you guys as well who spent years and years and years in this industry i mean.

So let's talk about the city of thornton here There there's some sort of idea out there that greeley's given the city of thornton capacity and the poodle river system. Is that true. No it's not true. tanner You know we had some discussions when thornton ran into a roadblock moore county We talked with those folks about the pipelines greeley has in our long-term need for those pipelines. We considered whether there were options to lease them interim or short term capacity. Found that to be a dead end and so there's no ongoing conversation with thornton thornton pursuing their project their water rights greeley's pursuing its own longevity and its projects and its investments in its own infrastructure. And i know that was something i mean we. We've talked about that Even with With chris would with biz west about how these these things take time. And there's always negotiations you'd be foolish not to at least here amount. We're talking again without jokers. Deputy director of water resources and sean chambers director of greeley water and sewer with us today. So you know at first. This was just about the terry ranch project but this New proposed ballot measure. This is not just for that right. I mean this would have an effect on any ongoing or upcoming projects it absolutely would and it would undo some of the The practices that we've been employing for for years for example It would require a vote before we would be able to use any kind of groundwater or purchase any kind of groundwater well. We use groundwater currently to irrigate parks and cemeteries Same for Recycled wastewater will we indirectly us. Waste water throughout the city to irrigate golf courses in parks It goes well beyond terry ranch. One of the most significant impacts is that we wouldn't be able to make long term leases of water. We have over thirty long term leases of water particularly with our agricultural partners and that really helps irrigated egg in this areas And to put those to vote every time we want to do that. I mean we're talking multiple special elections every year To make.

"But quite typical of july afternoon thunderstorms in colorado's mountains. That's why he said residents and recreationists in the putter can canyon should pay very very close attention to weather forecasts Not only this summer but throughout the fall as well even more so over the next couple of weeks because once again. The forecast calls for continual weather pattern of those afternoon. Thunderstorms chances with a monsoonal moisture. He said of another flood occurring in the poodle river draining. It's not a question of if but absolutely when another flood will occur with the conditions. The way they are up there this and the kamerun peak. Fire burn scar. It doesn't take much rain to bring things down if it falls in the wrong spot. Now schlatter said that on a tuesday afternoon. An inch of rain fell in thirty minutes from slow moving storm that crept along at five miles per hour of the burn. Score a burn scar this in the crown point area your member. We saw that Same circumstance in greeley on july. First when you had anywhere estimates vary but anywhere between three point three inches and dover four inches of rain falling in the greeley area weld county in just about an hour and a half but meanwhile back to the burn scar in the crown point area. you had schlatter saying that. If rain had fallen on the burn scar it would have largely gone unnoticed. Obviously where it fell made all the difference now. The black hollow creek drainage and surrounding area are rated severe on the burn severity assessment conducted after the cameron pete fire the rating means that the soil is hydrophobic or it actually repels water. Slatter explained that even a typical rain. Like tuesday's on hydrophobic soil can cause did this immediate area major flooding. The reason is the water is an absorbed so it flows downhill picking up loose soil.

Mr miles bloom heart with the fort collins colorado one miles how are you this morning Doing great doing great looks like ninety eight degrees today. A warm one. You're going to get out. Hit some balls today or no. I don't know so. I was a complete transparency. In between the broncos calling a client. And i'm like hey you wanna go for a client meeting this afternoon. Go go go play some golf so i don't know maybe maybe miles. We have to do that all right. Let's do it eight miles. hey the korn ferry tours out of ppc colorado. So we do that too. Oh my god yeah so. I've never played. That course and i've had some buddies that are in the golf industry that have and just said it's ridiculous so the korn ferry back again and i think i talked about this a little bit yesterday but the misconception about the korn ferry tour i mean they they think just because it's not the pj these guys these guys out there the corn fair to would-be anybody in the state. I don't care what country club you belong to your best golfers gonna get beat by these guys on the korn ferry tour not even close. I've been out to at the last years and the korn ferry tour players are unbelievable. And you know you know. It's just a little bit of their game. you know. mostly. What i noticed is probably the difference between Them and the pga players comes down to everything right. It's a short game You know the mental game but the short game especially putting and but no they're remarkable ball-strikers. Of course there they get off the tee very long But now the korn. Ferry cooler is very very competitive. You know that old saying drive for show putt for dough and some of those greens out there and they're almost like concrete. I mean you just can't the ball to stop. Yeah and and it is. Yeah of course. It's an extremely long course what you would expect well being at elevation but it's gorgeous I'm going to try and go out later this afternoon to watch it and It's just a it's a great showcase for for the state of colorado and it's great that it's up here it's just a beautiful course. Well in the last couple of winters miles have gone on to do some pretty cool stuff in the pga as well. Yeah yeah i you know. I lost you that say that again. No i said either the winners of the last couple of winters of the corner to have gone on to do some some pretty cool things in the pga. Tour tour valedictorian tearing it up. He was absolutely tearing it up and No there's been some really good players on their You know You know it's it's just been such a such a good showcase and yeah i mean you know haven't heard a lot from zella taurus lately but i don't know the last you know Last for about two months. Stretch there on the tour. If not longer he was he was really doing well. Yeah there's no doubt all right miles let's talk about you. Were up in the burn scar yesterday up in over in the fort collins area and well after that big rain that we got last week. There's some water issues taking place. Yeah fortunately they didn't get you know greeley measurements of three to four inches which would have been catastrophic up there but when you get you know even an inch of rain or a half inch of rain about that burn scar area it it. It causes some some flooding and some mudslides. And when i say mudslides california mudslides right. They're smaller but They closed colorado fourteen at one point and then They've also caused some road damage. And you know when i when i went all through the burns gary and the upper buckhorn Well it's actually. The buckhorn road is is severely damaged And they're working on that but It's it's got a lot of problems and so didn't you. Were you saying that. They had the city for content to switch their water supplies. Right yeah so the city of four collins and this also impacted really too so the This water situation. The poodle river affects greeley as well. But what happens is fort. Collins takes about half of their water from tooth reservoir and half from the poodle river so when the poodle river has water quality issues with ash and sediment as it. Is you know at times now last week when we had that big rainfall The quality of that water was so bad that the city of fort collins turns off basically turns their valve off right shuts off the poodle river water. An only takes us from horse tooth reservoir so it gives them a backup They had that offer about a week and then yesterday i talked to the city and they were turning back on. The water. quality was better than they could use the river water. Give how does that impact the water levels over at horse which is such a huge tourist draw four fort collins. Yeah not not significantly you know. I talked to him about that. And you know. Here's the fortunate thing is northern water dumped as much water as they could from like up lake cranberry and grand leg in that area because they're severely impacted by the troublesome fire so they wanted to get that clean water down here right. That was that was the water from the year before. So what they did. Is they filled up like carter lake and horse to those have extremely clean water and they dumped all that water down there so that that these municipalities longer front range. What have that water. Should the poodle river water not be available because it's so dirty talking before my four. Vip guests it is miles heart out of the colorado in and we knew it was going to happen right. We knew that there was going to at some point be issues because of the sediment runoff and like you mentioned when you get that that much rain even if it is an inch or two within an hour that's going to be the issue. Yeah and fortunately this spring there's been abundant moisture up there And it's and the runoff came out really great But now we're getting into the monsoon season and that's the beck's problem area is like what happened last week where you can have some of these systems with a lot of moisture that stall out over You know the foothills in the mountains You know we've we've had our biggest floods. You don't have come in july and september so That's kind of the next worry because after being up there. Yeah there's projects going on but it's you know it's just too vast area you think of the perimeter the fire three hundred and twenty five miles. That's driving from here to grand junction and there is significant damage. I went into some areas. I hadn't been into the crystal mountain area which is south of the buckhorn is completely devastated that area around the csu mountain campus pingree park. Now those facilities were saved by the firefighters but area around there. is completely scorched.

And in canoes and boats You also have to have those onboard anybody twelve and under house to have a license done whatever they're on the water but really truly if you have a life vest on some of these other things can happen and and it's definitely survivable without them with that cold water People just aren't used to that.

It's a long time in coming our Counsel for many many years as about you know some way in which we could Take take advantage of the fact that the poodle river runs right through the middle of windsor and we just felt like it. Was this resource that we weren't really taking full advantage of and so A couple of years ago the council decided that we would use some of our parks and rec fund money to create this River walk experience which is Similar in in nature to What what fort collins has on the north side of The downtown where you know. It goes along the buddha river up there. It's got rocks. It's got seating area. Got walking trails extra parking etc but it sits right at the corner of this Part of the buddha river where the view is amazing. You can see people that might be tubing down the river or canoeing etc so We're really excited about it and that We're we're cutting the ribbon on friday. Well that's yeah and it seems like the public has been as backed this a lot. They've been pretty excited about this. They have they have This is I got no push back in windsor because A lot of people windsor realizes. This is A long thing. Overdue and Actually it's just the first phase of a bunch of stuff that we're gonna. We have planned as far as a a total master plan for that that area of the river. And we're really looking forward to it You know one of the things that will be able to do Starting this summer is we're going to have an area a little bit up the river. Actually a part of the same park believe it or not where people can put in a tube and get out right where this river walk experiences. So it's It's really exciting and We're really looking forward to it. Being open finally paul i. i don't. I don't know much about politics but i know that whenever you don't get any pushback That's pretty rare. You got to celebrate something like that. I'm i'm very fortunate In windsor the people of windsor very gracious To me and have been for quite some time as i've been on the council now for about five years but You know the public speaks out when they're when they're not happy about something or someplace that you've got the certainly make their voices known But this is definitely a project. We have the funds Sitting in a fun. Like i said where the money had to be spent on parks and so basically we Just decided this was a a really good use of those those monies and so we're We're really excited to get it open and let the public able to take advantage of it. Yeah and it's just in time. Well just in time is this. Weather's supposed to start warming up and things like that As you cut that ribbon. Again on friday But this is like you mentioned it as well.

What they're going to be doing out there. Yeah it is. It's incredible been able to go on a little bit of a tour there and and everything that's going to bring in to it So so paul. Obviously the pandemic was not easy on on any businesses. How did you guys navigate that. And where do you guys sit now. Is things start to open back up. Well we've been very fortunate as a community. I were not exactly sure what exactly the reason is. But our sales tax numbers of actually barely dipped in the last year.

Any community was actually up year over year over twenty nineteen And actually our our director finance actually was just telling us that our council meeting last night that We're actually a up fourteen percent or where where we were january february march a year ago and that was before the pandemic it. So we're We're very fortunate a lot of that of course attributable to our growth lot of new communities in neighborhoods. Here in in windsor.

"A hurry. That could complicate things. Yeah it can't one of the things why there might not be a really bad Run off is because unfortunately a lot of that soil up there is so dry it will suck up a lot of that. The problem is is some of that. Burns soil or four was burned. So severely that it repels the water and i think that's a big concern Because there's really nothing to stop it You know it's just gonna go down into those creeks and eventually like the poodle river right. So what i know. We've talked about this a little bit after all this happened but this is something that steps have been put into place months ago to help Clean so that the the The runoff With the additional soot and things like that the fire burning area. What are those steps still in place. Here's the bad thing right. The fire ended on december second. So yeah the crews are up there and and they got you know they. They did some work but they were able to get a whole lot done. And so unfortunately you know now that the debris flow mitigation and all of that that so hazardous trees. That's that's you know just starting now and really now is too late but there's really nothing they could do about it so really. I think we're in a wait and see pattern. And hopefully that comes off slowly. Talking with miles bloom heart fort collins colorado and The new state wildlife area pass was talking to me about that miles. You got people gotta get that renewed yes to what happened is last so the state wildlife areas were basically for hunting and fishing. That's who pays for it right License fees and excise taxes on on equipment. And so what's happened. Right is a lot of other. Recreationists have been using it and colorado parks and wildlife Finally said last year that they were gonna make people by Like a fishing or hunting license to access it so in. Some people didn't like to do that so this year. They came up with a pass. Like it's like forty six dollars annual pass to get into those sites one point four million acres of it and a lot of places that that people go to you know like bo decker and hey hegel lake and doughty and west and watch lake so It's kind of controversial. But you know you can see where colorado parks and wildlife is coming from to you know to make everybody pay their fair share. Did you miles. Oh i may have missed but did you say how much these passes cost what they are the same as the annual fishing license. So it's forty six. That's like forty six bucks so You know it it's It's a chunk of money but it's not huge but you know it is something you can also buy daily pass for nine bucks so But yeah it's something. They went to And you know they're gonna see how it's gonna work and then You know they might make reach to it after this year. Boom heart fort collins colorado miles april fools day. I used to really thoroughly enjoy april fool's day and then i started hosting kind of a new show. And now i can't say that i love it as much because i'm scrolling through and and look at all these different outlets and it seems like everybody has to make some sort of a joke on april fools day your thoughts on april fools day if as bad a day valentine's day it's a fake day. Really know it's a fake day and the problem is these media outlets still. Haven't figured out that you get in trouble with this stuff. And so i'm an old guy. I completely stay away from it. I'm school through this morning Inside said that russell wilson have been traded to the chicago bears. There's been enough speculation about stuff like that happening. That don't be. Don't be taken in like that. Like if it's absurd absurd enough then okay but things that have been relatively real. I think you stay away from. I agree you. Can't you know if it's absurd. Sure but if that's russell wilson being traded to the bears come on you. Can't you can't do that. Hey i mean there's enough people you know believing in the fake news anyhow. I'm not sure that's that's not true. So right yeah no. There's no doubt about that. And and Talk a little bit two miles. I mean journalists. I mean an rightfully. So in some instances But journalists in media have taken a beating over the last year as well About fake news claims and this and that so I think we deserved day off. Maybe yeah i think i think so and and you know what people have to understand is with social media now. A lot of people consider that as as media and so there's really the line has really become blurred. And so you know you see a lot of things on social media from people who haven't really investigated the issue and they just spout off about it and all of a sudden that becomes news. That's the big problem. I couldn't have said that you need better. Miles bloom heart for collins. Colorado and miles. What are you. What are you working on here in the new in the near future I have a Deliver county Sheriff's office they have a you know a swat team right and they're actually going to be changing their name also A more of what they do instead of you know about most of the time when where i when their most recognizable as win their surrounding a house where somebody doesn't wanna come out and they're going to expand their role Into lots of other things search and rescue yeah fire and all that so i think that's a good move. I think it's a move that you're looking at in law enforcement that they want to expand their roles outside of what we normally see them. And i think this is probably a good move by them. It feels like a cost efficient move in and cost effective. Move as well. He took a people trained that well and put them in some other areas. I think that's a as an absolute win. Yeah i think you know right. Because i think in some people dies. Swat teams have a stickler Because right that's when we see him and and so is just a way for them to to be able to show the public that they do more than than just try and get people barricaded out of their homes Yeah working on that story for next week and you know hopefully Out next week and and let people know about it. Because i think you know like you know like we talked about. I think it's important for people to see that. And i think it's an important move for law enforcement no doubt about it miles. I do have one last question for you. Sorry this i just remembered. I wanted to bring this up with you. I saw peace. And i believe it may have been a kelly lyle. Who is the one who put this out there. Another reporter over the colorado About ceus you not allowing any fans in do you have any more information on. That is that. How long is that going to.

"Barnes had this to say threaten was hopeful to move forward and labor canyon with the process of bringing the quality water thornton owns via pipeline to our residents. We remain committed to ensuring the people of thornton get the water they own and after taking sufficient time to review the judge's decision we will determine our next step so they're still possibly thinking about Appealing the decision that went into this But don't don't really see this going through when like this gets damaged that hard this early in the process normally you gotta go back in and reevaluate you got reevaluate. What what was wrong. The project change things And and move on. This is one of those that hasn't been as high profile as the nist project the northern integrated supply project That is still pushing forward in larmer county. It's been taking a hell twenty five years. I believe now at this time but Thornton had already has already dried up thousands of acres of northern colorado farms in a deceptive scheme to send poodle river water to suburban blue Bluegrass lawn said karen wagner of no pipe. Dream in an email statement. Since the tonight application is only the first of the three pipeline thornton northern project. No pipedream strongly recommends that thornton re-submit and application that protects property owners rights quality of life and preserves the peut river. The one thing that i will say this little off-topic these different projects. I mean i love the names of the groups that fight against these projects with the news. Bits the save the putter which sounds great right go to their website. Kota save the poodle rubs ryan do now go pull it up for yourself right now It's insane what some of these groups are but No pipedream That's a little little more creative than than save the putter but some of these organizations they they get thrown together. I mean and they get They they definitely get more Crazy with it more. What's pushing the boundaries. Is it still the naked people. Standing in the putter. Yeah that's exactly it. Yeah save the putter is it. Save the putter. dot com is. Is that what it is the. That's the group that's fighting against this this project And that's what i think helps and hurts these different groups that are trying to fight back against these water projects save the putin may have some valid points right. They they might. But why don't you use those points. Instead of putting pictures of you naked in the river like i it seems to invalidate. What they're doing but anyhow that that project does not look like it is gaining any any momentum in in the last last hope that they have to appeal the judge's ruling of course this is the thorton pipeline project that we're talking about here all right ryan. It's time to get on the train. It's it's time to get on the crazy train this.

Wildfires Jeopardize Access To Drinking Water

"In many Western states, drinking water supply start high up in the mountains as reverse. This summer's record-breaking wildfires have reduced some headwaters, forest burn trees and heaps of Ash as Luke Runyan from member. Station K. U.. NC reports that often creates expensive headaches for water treatment plants long after the smoke clears. Few places in the West know how wildfires affect water supplies like Fort Collins Colorado the state's largest wildfire ever recorded is burning just outside the city now but their problems really started eight years ago before then it's main water source the poodle river was nearly pristine. We had been privileged and in some ways probably took for granted that these watersheds were providing. A consistently clean clear water all the time. That's Fort Collins Water Quality Manager. Jill or pays we're along the river just outside the city downstream from where in twenty twelve, the high park fire burned more than eighty, seven, thousand acres for the first year after the fire every time it rained the river turned black from mudslides we ended up with a lot. Of Sediment in our pipelines that was difficult to remove to keep those muddy flows from causing problems, the city installed an early warning system, a series of monitoring stations along the river. If there's too much sediment or a pays says utility workers can turn off the treatment plants intake and switch to water from a large reservoir it became really important for us. To have a heads up for win those changes in water quality were occurring the effects of the burn scar on water quality only lasted a few years but this early warning system is far from obsolete because this year is cameron peak fire has burned another broad sweep of the river's watershed, which means for Collins, again joins the list of western cities learning. To live with wildfires that burn bigger and hotter than they've ever seen before this is a new reality and we're learning as we go. Joe. Harwood is with the water and electrical utility for two hundred, thousand people in and around Eugene Oregon this summer the holiday farm fire burned along the banks of their sole water source, the McKenzie River soon after their. Customers noticed the water coming out of their faucets had a smokey taste people quite frankly to use a scientific term freaked out because it's not something he'd dealt with me for Harwood's says, they eventually figured out the chemistry at their treatment plan to remove the taste and when this winter's rainstorms arrive, utility workers will be monitoring for other harmful things that can. Be transported in wildfire runoff like nitrates, heavy metals, and dissolved. Organic carbon were trying to learn the lessons of others, Colorado, and California to create our own best management practices. The utility is spending one million dollars this year on post fire erosion control with more spending plan. Next year hardwood says back on the banks of Colorado's Putina River the city of Fort. Collins. Jill. Or A peyser says the city had to raise water rates to deal with effects of the fire eight years ago that could happen again. But she says decisions the city made after that last big fire like building new infrastructure to remove sediment and beefing up policies around residential water restrictions will help them respond this time around we live in fire prone. watershed and. Are Part of our responsibility to adapt to those that reality a reality that because of climate change increasingly includes drier forests, hotter summers and extended fire seasons across the West for NPR news I'm Luke Runyan in Fort Collins Colorado.
