New WWTP Upgrades to Break Ground Soon!

Proposed ribbon-cutting ceremony Proposed ribbon-cutting ceremony

OLT finally received the needed ground water discharge permit from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) after a four year process that allows OLT to engage contractors for the construction of the project. We are currently obtaining bids as we await final design approval from the state. OLT plans to break ground on the new WWTP facilities this fall with completion expected in about 6-8 weeks. The new WWTP upgrades will be odorless, quiet and a great improvement to the overall wastewater treatment capacity at OLT. The WWTP campaign financing this project stands at $38,000 to date with a goal of $180,000.
