January 31, 2020

Work designed to ease flooding and mud flows from the Lake Christine Fire burn scar in Basalt and El Jebel was completed in late December. The project came in about $56,000 above the $1.3 million budget, which was mostly supplied through a state and federal grant. Despite the overrun, all the work was worth it, according to Basalt Town Manager Ryan Mahoney.
