Topic: Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion
A Public Hearing will be conducted for informing residents and soliciting public input, written or oral, regarding the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Expansion’s Project Needs Assessment (PNA) and Environmental Assessment (EA). The PNA is a report detailing the project as proposed, including project necessity, alternatives, and components. The PNA also describes how the project is being funded. The EA is a report detailing any environmental impacts of the project. The reports are being submitted to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to qualify the Town of Wellington for a State Revolving Fund Loan.
Wellington provides wastewater collection and treatment services for its residents. The Town’s Wastewater Treatment Plant has reached its treatment limits. An expansion is required to increase treatment capacity, meet more stringent discharge limits, provide process equipment redundancy, and replace aged equipment.
The estimated total project construction cost at the 60% design level was $39,757,290.
Copies of the PNA and EA will be available for public review prior to the Public Hearing at the following locations: Wellington Town Hall, 3735 Cleveland Avenue, Wellington, Colorado 80549; or, online at: https://www.wellingtoncolorado.gov/495/Reports.
