Check the Wastewater page for ongoing updates on the expansion of the Waste Water Treatment Facility, provided by Nederland Public Works Manager Chris Pelletier, CWP.
For several years Nederland has been planning the expansion of the Waste Water Treatment Facility to reduce operational costs and eliminate the remaining sludge pond. In June 2018, voters approved to allow Nederland to borrow $2 million to fund this facility upgrade. Because of the efficiency of the proposed facility upgrade, Staff was able to secure a 0% interest loan. Additionally, the Town of Nederland received a grant for $950,000. At the October 16, 2018 Board of Trustees meeting, a contract with Fischer Construction Inc. was approved to begin construction. With funds secured and a construction contract in place, residents will begin to see construction activities at the Waste Water Treatment Facility starting end of October 2018.
