La Plata Archuleta Water District
It was a long time coming, but potable in-house running water has become reality in a south-central La Plata County neighborhood. The La Plata Archuleta Water District, officially formed in August 2008, and on Thursday it marked the first delivery of water at the home of Lucas and Brittney Avery in the Silver Hills subdivision off County Road 510. The recognition was symbolic.

The La Plata Archuleta Water District (LAWD) will be conducting a groundbreaking ceremony in Bayfield (CO) on November 13, 2012 at 2:00 pm near the roundabout on County Road 501. For more information contact the LAWD.
The La Plata Archuleta Water District, preparing to break ground on its first pipeline network, has received $500,000 from state sources to further the project. A Colorado Water Conservation Board grant will cover $475,000, with the remainder coming from the Southwest Basin Roundtable’s share of the Water Supply Reserve Account. Ground breaking is scheduled Nov. 13.
To discourage sprawl and encourage urban infill, Three Springs Boulevard is supposed to be Durango’s eastern city limit, according to the direction that City Council gave to staff members at a planning retreat two year ago, said City Manager Ron LeBlanc. As a supplier of water, the city of Durango is under pressure to untap its resources for rural development.
A joint Bayfield/La Plata Archuleta Water District (LPAWD) water treatment plant would cost substantially less than if LPAWD builds a separate plant from scratch. That was the key result of a feasibility study presented to Bayfield town trustees in August.
August 19, 2011--Bayfield, LAPLAWD continue to look at building joint water plant (Pine River Times)
A joint Bayfield/ La Plata Archuleta Water District water treatment plant would cost substantially less than if LAPLAWD builds a separate plant from scratch. That was the key result of a feasibility study presented to Bayfield town trustees Tuesday night.
The Water Supply Reserve Account received the January installment of funds as a "Tier II" severance tax program. This means the WSRA received another 30% of the appropriation for FY 2010/2011 or an additional $1.8 million of the $6 million appropriation.
Cooperation got a positive response on Oct. 19 at a joint meeting of Bayfield town trustees and La Plata/ Archuleta Water District board members. They discussed a possible joint venture to expand the town’s existing water treatment plant or to build a new one. Either one would provide water to both entities.
La Plata ArchuletaWater District has proposed a plan to build a joint water-treatment plant with the Town of Bayfield. Dick Lunceford, president of the water district, told the town board that a joint venture could benefit both entities. Both the Town and the District will be getting their water from Vallecito Reservoir via the Pine River.
