Here’s the release from the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District:

Eagle River Water and Sanitation District will begin construction on April 18 on upgrades to the Vail public water system. The project includes installation of additional piping, remote water quality analyzers, and upgraded equipment at seven sites throughout Vail and is required to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s new Ground Water Rule regulations…

The Ground Water Rule applies to more than 147,000 public water systems throughout the United States that use ground water. The Environmental Protection Agency anticipated the Ground Water Rule would result in increased costs to public water systems and States. Implementation of the Ground Water Rule in the Vail public water system is funded via an existing monthly debt service rate. Construction at the various sites will continue through November.
