From the Longmont Times Call:

The water system in Mesa Verde National Park in southwest Colorado will get an $11.5 million makeover as part of $750 million in federal economic stimulus funds for the National Park Service. National parks in Colorado will receive a total of $20.4 million, including $2.7 million for Rocky Mountain National Park and $2.5 million for Great Sand Dunes National Park. The money will help pay for work on trails; restoration of historic buildings; replacement of a boardwalk; sewer lines; heating systems in employee housing; and resurfacing of some roads in Rocky Mountain National Park.
