Water to the Mountain

Pajarito's collection pond.

Pajarito’s collection pond.

We’ve scheduled a meeting with the hydrologist and pond engineer for this Wednesday, and George Lawrence, former president of the Ski Club, will be on hand to lend us his renowned expertise of Pajarito’s water history, challenges and opportunities.

Our objective for this first meeting is to identify potential pond locations for additional water storage, and I anticipate we will also determine additional weir (or water collection point) locations.

I’m also pleased to report that we are making progress in soliciting bids for our test well. Not many contractors have the capability to drill a 3,000-foot deep well, so Tom Long is scouring New Mexico and Texas for the right contractor.
