From the Glenwood Springs Post Independent (John Stroud):

During a brief project update at last week’s Glenwood Springs City Council meeting, [project engineer Chad Paulson of SGM Engineers] said about one-third of the work is complete and approximately 42 percent of the budget spent…

The new plant, located west of the existing municipal operations building, will replace the outdated sewer treatment facility on Seventh Street, near the confluence of the Roaring Fork and Colorado rivers. The construction contract was awarded last spring to Salida-based Moltz Construction for $22.3 million…

Including engineering and the related work last summer to connect the lift station at the current wastewater treatment plant site to the new location, the total project cost is around $33 million. Some of that overall cost will also cover eventual demolition of the old plant.
