From the Englewood Herald News:
An April 22 celebration marked the successful completion of the four-year construction project to modernize and expand the Englewood/Littleton Wastewater Treatment Plant. Dennis Stowe, plant manager, said the project upgraded existing equipment and processes plus added additional treatment stages to bring the plant into compliance with federal regulations. Despite the size and extent of the project, it was completed on time and came in about $1.2 million under budget.
The plant is jointly owned by the cities of Englewood and Littleton. It is a regional facility that serves the area from Interstate 25 to the foothills and from Highlands Ranch north to Evans Avenue. The plant provides treatment services to about 160,000 accounts, which serves about 270,000 people.
The four-year modernization and expansion project cost more than $113 million and expanded the size of the plant by about 39 percent. Major segments of the project included substantial changes to existing treatment processes, addition of a nitrate-removal process and expansion of plant capacity from 36.3 million gallons a day to 50 million gallons a day.
