From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):

“We have poured more than 2,500 cubic yards of concrete to form the foundation for the new connection,” said Janet Rummel, spokeswoman for Colorado Springs Utilities. The $6 million project is being done by ASI Constructors of Pueblo West and is on target to be completed in mid-2012…

One line from the North Outlet Works will feed the Juniper Pump Station, which will be built nearby. The other will feed the Arkansas River. There is also the potential to interconnect the new outlet with the existing South Outlet Works, which serves Pueblo, Pueblo West and the Fountain Valley Authority. It would also serve the future Arkansas Valley Conduit, which is now under environmental review.

Trenching has begun in Pueblo West for the 66-inch-diameter pipeline that will be installed as part of the project.
