The Town of Paonia has scheduled a special meeting for 9 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 29, to authorize final payment of bills related to this year's water system upgrades projects.

In addition, the town will consider renewal of its contract with the U.S. Geological Survey for operations of the flow gauge monitoring of the North Fork of the Gunnison River. The gauge is used in monitoring water quality below the town's wastewater treatment plant. Monitoring information is used for renewing the town's annual discharge permits.

Public works director Travis Loberg explained at the Dec. 8 town board meeting that water discharged from the plant must be cleaner than the river water.

A few years ago the USGS planned to close down the station. In order to meet the requirements, the town would have needed to hire an engineer to do the analysis, which would have been very costly, according to Loberg.

This year's contract is $790 less than the $4,500 the town paid in 2015. The lower cost is due to the town only operating the gauge during low river flows, said Loberg.
