Colorado Springs Utilities has plans for some of the stimulus dough from the bill President Obama signed yesterday, according to a report from the Colorado Springs Gazette. From the article:
Utilities submitted requests for funding for four projects:
• $5.8 million for improvements to Fountain Creek on Clear Spring Ranch south of Colorado Springs, including a fish ladder, creek realignment, wetlands development, bank improvements, and off-channel detention.
• $13.3 million for work at 20 locations where sewage lines cross creeks and are at risk of overflowing during storms.
• $10 million to extend the nonpotable water system in northern Colorado Springs.
• $600,000 for a demonstration project on low-impact development at the Mesa Environmental Center.
