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.
