PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - Pueblo County will be allowed to join a federal lawsuit against Colorado Springs.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (https://bit.ly/2lSW4nY ) that on Thursday both the county and the Lower Arkansas Valley Water Conservancy District were granted motions allowing them to join the lawsuit, which says pollutants discharged into Fountain Creek cause problems in Pueblo and other Arkansas River tributaries to the east.

Pueblo County commissioners say they value the relationship the county has developed with Colorado Springs over water agreements and that they hope joining the lawsuit does not jeopardize it.

Colorado Springs mayor John Suthers previously released a statement saying he is disappointed in Pueblo County’s decision to intervene in the lawsuit.
