Telluride may sit at the top of a watershed, but as the last two summers have proven, that does not make it immune to drought. Now, in an effort to establish efficiency measures, gain a comprehensive understanding of its water supply and meet a requirement set out in a 2012 water settlement agreement, the town is setting out to develop a water efficiency plan.
November 30, 2013--Telluride moves to future with new snowmaking infrastructure, technology (Watch Newspapers)
In a perfect world, all 280 acres of terrain at the Telluride Ski Resort with access to manmade snow would be open by Christmas.
The Town of Telluride is considering utilizing financing mechanisms known as “certificates of participation” to raise the roughly $4.7 million it needs to finish the Pandora water project.

A dusty, noisy construction zone consuming the east end of the canyon is proof that the Town of Telluride’s ambitious Pandora Water Project is slowly making progress. The town and its contractors Southwest Contracting LLC of Cortez and URS Corporation of Denver are continuing with the next phase of construction on the Pandora water treatment system project.
On the verge of a major phase of construction on its long-awaited Pandora water treatment plant, the Town of Telluride has started to explore ways to patch the project’s significant funding shortfall. And finding that money — an estimated $4 million to finish the project by 2014 — won’t be easy.
The Town of Norwood along with the Lone Cone Ditch and Reservoir Company reached a settlement with the Town of Telluride over Telluride’s opposition to applications for water rights on the San Miguel river.
The Telluride Town Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to enter into a comprehensive settlement agreement with Idarado Mining over long-standing water issues in Bridal Veil Basin.
When Mother Nature brought snow to the San Juan Mountains late Thursday, Larry Hjermstad fired up clouding-seeding generators to increase the bounty. Hjermstad, calculating wind direction, started generators near Lemon Dam and Bayfield to benefit Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort.
Few were present in the Telluride Town Council’s meeting chambers last Tuesday, Nov. 20, for perhaps the most momentous agenda item of the entire year – the unveiling of a pending comprehensive settlement agreement regarding the Bridal Veil water system between the Idarado Mining Company and the Town of Telluride.
