About that SDS pipieline. I agree that they should start it BELOW the fountain creek pipeline.
I have always felt, (even when I was living in Co. Springs), that If ALL cities were forced to pull out their drinking water downstream of their sewage treatment plants, the rivers and stream in this state/country would be SO MUCH cleaner, voluntarily!
Since all of Co.Springs "cleaned-up" sewage water goes into Fountain Creek, forcing them to recycle it for drinking water is a great idea.
If their normal discharges are at the "safe levels" they claim, then they shouldn't have any problem drinking it a 2nd time. (3rd, 4th, 5th.....)
ps.... I live and work in Fremont County, along the Ark, so regardless, CO. Springs will be drinking my crap! In fact, I think I'll go piss in the river right now---oh wait, no, I'll hold it until the pipeline is built.
