FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — County officials have delayed public hearings after requesting additional information on a pipeline project that would transport water from a northern Colorado river to a Denver suburb.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports Larimer County officials requested additional material last week from the city of Thornton before reviewing its application to build a pipeline to connect to water from the Poudre River.

The requested information includes field surveys, pipe alignment, construction schedules and a pavement restoration plan.

A group of Larimer County residents has criticized the proposed project, citing concerns on the pipeline’s impact on residential property.

Thornton Water Project Director Mark Koleber says the project’s intent is to avoid using private property, and to have it constructed within the right of way along Douglas Road.
