The New Wastewater Treatment Plant

Everyone, from residents to district board members and district staff, is very happy that Woodmen Hills Metro District is replacing its existing wastewater treatment plant. The new facility will comply with new, higher standards promulgated by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

The project’s timeline was carefully laid out months ago by the district and the district’s contractor JDS Hydro.

See the bullets below to learn where we’ve been and where we’re going.

  • On March 27 and March 29, 2016, the district published inThe Transcript, a tri-weekly newspaper in El Paso County, its Request for Proposal to build the new wastewater treatment facility.
  • On May 10, the district opened bids received in public, at Community Center West, at 2:00 pm. This event is open to the public.

  • On May 25, at the regular district board meeting, JDS Hydro, a district contractor, will make a recommendation to the board as to which contractor should be selected.

  • On May 25, the district board will vote to select a contractor.

  • On May 31, the district will issue an award notice to that contractor.

  • On June 22, at the regular district board meeting, the district will approve the final contract.

  • On June 30, the district will give the contractor selected a notice to proceed.

  • By July 15, construction will break ground.

  • By October 2018, construction will be completed and residents will have a brand new wastewater treatment facility that solves all of the current facility’s problems.

Of course, it’s possible that events could affect the timeline, but the timeline above represents the district’s current plan.

We’re excited to be undertaking this journey to a new-and-improved wastewater treatment facility. Thanks for your patience as we strive to make Woodmen Hills as great as it can be.
