USBR AWARDS $1.5 M CONTRACT to Repair Big Thompson Infrastructure Damaged by 2013 Flooding

The Bureau of Reclamation has awarded a contract totaling nearly $1.5 million to Lillard and Clark Construction Company Inc., Denver, for repair to the Big Thompson Diversion Structure, an element of the Colorado-Big Thompson project that was damaged during the September 2013 flood, known as one of the worst natural disasters in Colorado history.
“Reclamation is addressing the infrastructure damage that occurred during the 2013 Colorado River flooding,” said Reclamation Commissioner Estevan López, while announcing today’s $1,457,570 contract award. “This work will ensure the project’s continued reliability.”
Big Thompson Diversion Structure, located 8.5 miles west of Loveland, Colorado, in Larimer County, requires removal and restoration of flood-damaged concrete areas, installation of a precast concrete building, repair and replacement of electrical systems, gates, gear boxes, electric motors and other rehabilitation tasks. The work is expected to begin in April 2015.

The Colorado-Big Thompson project spans approximately 250 miles in Colorado. It stores, regulates and diverts water from the Colorado River on the western slope of the Continental Divide to the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains, providing supplemental water to irrigate about 720,000 acres of land for municipal and industrial uses, hydroelectric power and water-oriented recreation opportunities. Major features of the project include dams, dikes, reservoirs, power plants, pumping plants, pipelines, tunnels, transmission lines, substations and other associated structures. The Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District apportions water used for irrigation to more than 120 ditches and 60 reservoirs. Eleven communities receive municipal and industrial water from the project. Electric power produced by six power plants is marketed by the Western Division of the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program.

The Bureau of Reclamation is the largest wholesale water supplier and the second largest producer of hydroelectric power in the United States, with operations and facilities in the 17 Western States.  Its facilities also provide substantial flood control, recreation, and fish and wildlife benefits.

BEWARE OF IRS TAX SCAMS
From Gay Page, CFEB Executive Director

I received four phone calls on March 17, 2015, threatening me with warrants for my arrest for unpaid taxes.  The caller's phone numbers were 703 552 8237 & 8238 and the content of the messages sounded very official.  First I called my CPA who told me this was a scam and then I called the IRS, who shared the following information regarding aggressive and sophisticated scams circulating from criminals claiming to be from the IRS and Treasury.    

While the scam can take different forms, the perpetrators commonly tell victims that they owe money, which they can pay through a pre-paid card, or are due a refund (a phishing tactic).  They often threaten victims with warrants and arrest. There are also reports of scammers targeting IRS employees by name, saying they're the subject of "an internal investigation."  In some instances, the scammers leave phone numbers that appear on caller ID as though they're actually coming from a legitimate government agency.

Regardless of the scam, the IRS will never:

  • Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill.
  • Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
  • Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
  • Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
  • Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
  • Use email, text messages or any social media to discuss your personal tax issue.

If you or someone you know receives a call from somebody claiming to be from the IRS asking for money or personal information, such as a bank account or Social Security number, report it to:

  • TIGTA at http://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact_report_scam.shtml
  • The FTC using its FTC Complaint Assistant | https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/GettingStarted#crnt |(add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments).
  • If you believe you may owe taxes, you should call the IRS at 800-829-1040 for help.
