Aspen water tour is Sept. 17
The Roaring Fork Conservancy will lead a tour at the head gate on Castle Creek that diverts high-mountain water to Aspen’s drinking-water treatment facility. The water treatment plant also will be included in the tour.
The tour is set for 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday. Attendees will meet at the Pitkin County Health and Human Services Building. The cost is free with underwriting from the city of Aspen Water Department.
Participants will be able to learn where Aspen’s drinking water comes from and just how clean it is from city workers who keep up to 8 million gallons of water moving through the pipes in Aspen each day.
Registration is required at http://www.roaringfork.org/events. Call 970-927-1290 with questions.
The Aspen City Council directed staff to move forward with the Burlingame early childhood education center, but decided it needs more information on the affordable housing units that are part of the schematic design at a work session Monday.
