“Blown away.”

Those were some of the words used by Rawlins city leaders while seeing first-hand the leaks along 32-miles of pipeline and other major problems with the municipality’s critical water infrastructure.

The new director of public works, the city manager and an engineer facilitated a six-hour tour of the Rawlins Springs on Saturday, taking three members of the governing body to see problem areas along the pipeline, and within the Nugget Wellfield and the Upper Sage Creek Basin springs. Bigfoot 99’s Cali O’Hare tagged along and filed this report.
