Q. If several county roads are impacted, how would I get access to my private property?
A. Aurora would work with Park County on any road realignments, detours and temporary access roads, including CR 53 which would be realigned, improved and dedicated to Park County.

Q. How long would it take to build?
A. The project is still in the permitting phase. It is anticipated construction would begin mid-2020s and occur seasonally over approximately five to six years, including reclamation. The project is targeted to be completed in the early 2030s.

Q. What will be the impacts of construction?
A. Aurora Water and its contractors would be committed to completing the construction as quickly and efficiently as possible and working closely with Park County, local residents, businesses and others to minimize and address impacts. Aurora and/or its contractors would coordinate directly with any impacted landowners before and during construction to answer questions. We would implement industry best practices to monitor these impacts and minimize them as much as possible. These would include measures to reduce dust including watering construction sites and keeping construction vehicle speeds slow. As with any major infrastructure construction, various components of the Wild Horse Reservoir construction would also require the movement of trucks and machinery through roadways in Park County. CR 53 would be relocated and some county roads may be closed for short periods. Any traffic reroutes would be clearly marked before and during road closures or construction. Construction areas would also be appropriately marked with signs and fencing. Safety will be our top priority.
