12 - San Miguel Basin Forum, Thursday, February 18, 1999 Nucla residents will have cleaner, better tasting water, now that 40 yards of "material" has been pulled from the bottom of the water tank. Public Works superintendent, Carl Pender, reported at last Wednesday's Nucla Town Board meeting that the material was "the same color as the paint on the inside of the tank," and that he'd believed that the tank was pretty clean until he saw the stuff that came out of it. Trustee Chris Daniels, who watched individuals from the company that cleaned the tank don wet suits and dive to-the bottom, described the material as rust-colored and sand-like. Pender believes it was material from the flocculator. It was not hazardous material, so. Pender dumped it out On the ground near the water treatment plant. He explained that this company recommended that the tank be cleaned every two to five years.
