From the Glenwood Springs Post Independent (John Gardner): “According to city engineer Mike McDill, Western Martinez Constructors from Rifle will begin work on an access road at the new site and installation of a pipeline that will connect the existing facility on Seventh Street with the new one west of the Meadows Shopping Center. McDill said that construction will start on the west end of Wulfsohn Road and Midland Avenue near where the entrance to the new facility will be. The next step in this first phase will be placing the connecting pipeline along Midland Avenue to the existing facility and that could create congestion at the Eighth Street and Midland Ave. intersection later in the summer or early fall, according to McDill…The new plant is expected to increase the wastewater capacity from about 1.8 million gallons per day to around 2.6 million. The current plant runs about 1.2 million gallons per day.”
