New groundwater treatment facility project about to start in Fountain

Posted at 5:39 PM, Jul 17, 2019

FOUNTAIN — The City of Fountain is about to start a project that city leaders say will fix their water problems for the long term.

A news groundwater treatment facility is going to be built just north of the existing one.

The facility will be paid for by the Air Force and will be built by the Army Corps of Engineers. The project is part of the agreement reached to protect Fountain's water from contamination from Peterson Air Force Base in 2016.

Since the construction is in Aga Park, safety and noise are a concern.

If you have questions or want more information on the project, there will be a public meeting Thursday night from 4 - 8 p.m. at the Fountain Library.
