Press Release – for immediate release December 17, 2019 at 3pm.
The 2019 Salida Sewer Collection System Infrastructure Build-Out Plan, which evaluates the wastewater collection system infrastructure, including the service area of the municipalities of the City of Salida and Town of Poncha Springs is available to be viewed here.
The plan was completed to evaluate the wastewater collection system infrastructure for the existing, planned, and full built-out conditions within the wastewater service area. The results of the plan included sizing of infrastructure for future development, capital improvement recommendations to existing infrastructure, budgetary cost estimates, and sewer rate forecasting. The plan identified that the sewer trunk line servicing the Town of Poncha Springs is approaching capacity and will ultimately need to be upsized to accommodate future development. The plan also recommends that additional data collection consisting of flow monitoring within the trunk main be obtained and reviewed during the course of the next year.
