A public hearing was conducted on Thursday, Jul 15th, 2021 for informing citizens and soliciting public input, written or oral, regarding the Town of Empire Well & Water Treatment Improvements Project and Preliminary Engineering Report (PER). Rob Anderson, our engineer from JVA, presented the information and also left the large plan drawings for us to keep in Town Hall. The PER is a report detailing the project consisting of proposed well improvements including a new drilled well and treatment, and improvements to the current slow sand filtration system. Total project costs are estimated at $2.1 million. The report is being submitted to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to qualify the Town of Empire for a State Revolving Fund Loan. Copies of the Preliminary Engineering Report are available for public review at Empire Town Hall or by clicking on the links below:
