Why do we need an expansion at the Wastewater Treatment Plant?

The wastewater treatment plant is currently at its built-out point, meaning it has lasted as long as it was supposed to last. The expansion is needed to meet compliance for current residents while also planning for future growth. New regulations imposed by the State of Colorado cannot be met with the capability of our current plant leading to needed improvements to continue operation for both current and future members of the Wellington community.
