A new water diversion system for the Fort Morgan Reservoir and Irrigation Co. benefits both local agricultural producers and the City of Fort Morgan. Members of the irrigation company had a chance to look at the new system on the South Platte River at an open house Saturday. It consists of gates that rise and fall with air bladders, making running the gates much simpler and safer, said President Pete Krohn, who was there to answer questions from members.
