From the Estes Park Trail Gazette (Kate Rusch):

Town Trustees and staff invite the public to an open house to celebrate the completion of this state-of-the-art facility on Thursday, April 8 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 10:00 a.m. From 10:15 a.m. until 1:45 p.m., staff will be stationed throughout the facility to explain the water treatment process…

The Marys Lake Water Treatment Plant is located at 899 Lakewood Court near the southeast side of Marys Lake. Parking is limited and carpooling is encouraged. A shuttle will be available for those who park along Lakewood Court and Marys Lake Road. The facility now uses state-of-the-art membrane technology to treat water for the residents and visitors of the Estes Valley. The new system improves filtration to exclude particles less than 1 micron in size and requires fewer chemical additives to treat water. It also prepares Estes Park to meet more stringent water treatment regulations in the future. The plant`s treatment capacity has doubled to 4 million gallons per day (MGD) in the summer and at least 2.5 MGD in the winter. The membrane filtration systems are fully automated and water plant operators will be able to focus on maintaining the system which is cleaned several times a day.
