    Meeting for Landowners and Public

    TORRINGTON, Wyo. July 24, 2019--Hundreds of people filled the Eastern Wyoming College auditorium for a public meeting that was held at 2 pm on Wednesday, concerning the collapse of the Ft. Laramie tunnel and canal. Even though the auditorium was filled with mixed emotions including fear and sadness, people had positive demeanors. Everyone remains optimistic.  A man led a prayer for farmers, families, workers, and representatives.  


    A company out of Houston has been hired and is in the process of building pipe for the replacement of the collapsed tunnel. GID Commissioners Secretary/Treasurer, Shawn Booth, explained that once the pipe is completed, they will haul it to Goshen County to begin the installation.  Members of the GID Board are trying to be optimistic in hoping that there is a time table of the end of August for irrigators to see a water supply again.
