Living Without Running Water (In A Ghost Town)
Water! That's been the missing puzzle piece at Cerro Gordo since the town was established in 1865. There have been many attempts at securing running water here, but none have worked in the long run...yet.
This week I dive into the past, present, and future of the water problem here at Cerro Gordo. I'll go through how I currently deal with no running water, how I'm attempting to get water from the abandoned Union Mine, and what I hope to do in the future.
I thank you all so much for the support of the town and the channel. If you haven't already, I really hope you'll subscribe to keep up to date with the progress here!
