Another 4th of July has come and gone in the City of Ouray. This year was another success with what many people feel was the largest crowd ever to come to the City for the holiday.

 Waste Water Treatment Plant Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version  
What’s happening at the City of Ouray Waste Water Treatment plant as you enter town? The City of Ouray has contracted with Liquid Waste Management to remove the bio-solid sludge that has built up over the last twenty plus years in the lagoons.

Equipment will be moved in over the next several weeks to dredge the sludge out of the lagoons. This project is expected to start the second week of May and last approximately three weeks. A dredge will pump the sludge into a conveyor press to remove the water where it is then loaded into trucks and hauled to a composting facility in the Delta area.

If anyone has any questions please call Dennis L. Erickson, Public Works Director at 325-7074.
