Historic Larimer County president, Ron Sladek, will give a talk on the Power Plant diversion dam (AKA the Coy diversion ditch). This unassuming bit of concrete along the Poudre River holds a surprisingly legal history that few people know about. In preparation for the creation of a white water rafting park along a stretch of the Poudre river in downtown Fort Collins, Ron was tasked with surveying the various artifacts in and along the water. Join us as Ron relays the history of this stretch of water, as well as some of the surprising discoveries he made during his research.
