Cedaredge Public Works Department reports that ground settling at the new wastewater plant is causing large gaps to appear in concrete work.
"We have been working with [the contractor] to address the moving concrete and electrical boxes ... most of the concrete sidewalks around the entire plant pulled away from the buildings and fell approximately 1.5 inches," states a department report to trustees on the problem.
The current settling problem will be rectified as a warranty repair.
Two fatal accidents occurred in Delta County within a two-day span last week.
Casey Gillenwater, 25, of Delta was killed the afternoon of Wednesday, Sept. 13, in a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 133 outside of Hotchkiss.
