The WIP, in conjunction with the Mountain Studies Institute and the San Juan Mountains Association, will be conducting their second Forests-to-Faucets Teacher Training Workshop in June 2013 in Pagosa Springs. This will be an opportunity for K-12 teachers to earn one continuing education credit from Adams State University.
The Colorado School of Mines Geophysics Department (CSM) released results of research recently conducted throughout the Pagosa Springs area. The research, conducted on the geothermal aquifer, resulted in evidence indicating a much larger and more complex system than had been previously suspected.
In the opening 10 minutes of Roman Polanski’s Academy Award-winning film “Chinatown,” Jack Nicholson’s character J.J. Gittes finds himself in a meeting regarding water. One man boasts that a reservoir is needed, that a dam must be built, and the price of $8.5 million is more than fair.
Momentum regarding the development of the area’s geothermal resources has ramped up in recent weeks as research conducted on the geothermal aquifer resulted in evidence indicating a much larger and more complex system than had been previously suspected. Pagosa Country is edging closer towards making that geothermal resource the centerpiece of a larger economic development initiative.
Like an artesian well percolating up from the Earth, momentum for harnessing the area’s geothermal resources has gained momentum during the past month.
Fire crews continued to work mostly within the perimeter of the Little Sand Fire near Pagosa Springs on Monday and built firelines along U.S. Forest Service Road 639. The problems were manageable considering what firefighters are dealing with in southwestern New Mexico. The goal is to keep the fire where it is – north of the Piedra River near Pagosa Springs.
With the second reading of Ordinance 769 during the May 1 meeting of the Pagosa Springs Town Council, the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership (GGP) was provided with leases for land and geothermal water that had been previously held by the Southwest Land Alliance (SLA), providing the group with further leverage in its pursuit of grant money.
The Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership (GGP) was recently awarded a $25,000 grant from the Laura Jane Musser Fund to contribute to the implementation of the greenhouse initiative in Centennial Park. The Musser Foundation encourages the collaborative and participatory efforts among citizens in rural communities to strengthen their towns in civic areas including economic development, arts an
Questions surrounding the town’s ability to treat its wastewater recently became complicated by two issues: the loss of federal funding to pay for that treatment and the apparent disregard for local contractors in a bidding process.
