Springs Utilities Project 60 Percent Complete

By  | 

A project to lower power costs for Colorado Springs Utilities is nearly done.

The delivery of tanks, parts and materials at the Martin Drake Power Plant this morning signifies 60 percent completion of the Neu-Stream Emissions Control Project.

Springs Utilities teamed up last year with a group to provide a system that would meet the Environmental Protection Agency's requirement of capturing sulfur dioxide emissions.

The first part of the project is expected to be completed by 2015.
