The Annual Water Quality Report is designed to provide consumers with information on the quality of the water delivered by their public water system. Annual Water Quality Reports must contain information about the water system; information on the source of the water; reporting levels of contaminants detected in the finished water; information on cryptosoridium, radon, and other unregulated contaminants; information on any violations of the national primary drinking water regulations; and information regarding any variances or exemptions the water system may be operating under.
A moderate incline runs towards the foot of Maybury Hill, and down this we clattered. Once the lightning had begun, it went on in as rapid a succession of flashes as I have ever seen. The thunderclaps, treading one on the heels of another and with a strange crackling accompaniment, sounded more like the working of a gigantic electric machine than the usual detonating reverberations. The flickering light was blinding and confusing, and a thin hail smote gustily at my face as I drove down the slope.
At first I regarded little but the road before me, and then abruptly my attention was arrested by something that was moving rapidly down the opposite slope of Maybury Hill. At first I took it for the wet roof of a house, but one flash following another showed it to be in swift rolling movement. It was an elusive vision a moment of bewildering darkness, and then, in a flash like daylight, the red masses of the Orphanage near the crest of the hill, the green tops of the pine trees, and this problematical object came out clear and sharp and bright.
Proposition 422 is a City Council Ballot Measure that would provide authority to issue $25 Million in General Obligation Bonds. If approved, it would provide funding for City programs to address housing affordability, both home ownership and rental.
Pine Forest under High Fire Danger Status
Weather conditions in our city and county are similar to those of 2012 and 2013 which saw many homes destroyed in Colorado by the likes of the Waldo Canyon fire and the Black Forest fire. This year Pueblo County has recently experienced several fires resulting in the loss of numerous structures and thousands of acres of grass and river bottom land. The Barnett Fire just east of Pueblo destroyed 5 homes in April, and both the Carson-Midway & 117 Fires recently destroyed multiple homes. Several major fires are expanding in our region.
Long term weather predictions are forecasting above-average temperatures while our region is in a moderate-to-extreme drought. The recent scattered rainfall has done little to change long-term fire conditions as winds also persist.
