August 18, 2013--For Lake Durango users, water is low (Durango Herald)

The welcome monsoon rains have more than settled the dust, but they’ve done little for Lake Durango water customers. The estimated 1,200 Lake Durango Water Authority customers are under Stage 3 restrictions, which means no outside watering, Tom Brossia reported at a meeting of the Animas-La Plata Water Conservancy District last week.

La Plata County has a very active youth baseball program, but was woefully lacking fields to play on. In 2010 the nonprofit, volunteer organization Youth Baseball of Southwestern Colorado (YBSWC) approached the Animas-La Plata Water Conservancy District (ALPWCD) about property the district owns near the Durango Pumping Plant that supplies the water for Lake Nighthorse. After the ALPWCD posted announcements in the local paper to solicit further interests in use of the property, the YBSWC was the only entity to respond. In 2011 they signed a 20 year lease for $100 per year with the ALPWCD for youth sporting events. Since that time, community funds and time have been donated to build two professional, regulation youth baseball fields, and plans are on track to begin playing ball this spring. Thank you ALPWCD for going to bat for youth baseball in La Plata County and southwest Colorado!
