Updates to stormwater treatment at Prockter Open Space

Aug 1, 2016

Prockter Open Space will be getting some updates this fall, and the City of Aspen is looking for public input today.


As part of ongoing efforts to treat stormwater before it enters the Roaring Fork River, the City of Aspen is planning the final steps in updating a treatment site at Prockter Open Space, near Herron Park.


This area will treat stormwater from the Smuggler-Hunter drainage basin, which includes a superfund site.


At a public open house at 4 p.m. today at Herron Park, the city’s engineering department will showcase plans for a constructed wetland. The design is intended to minimize the amount of sediment that reaches the Roaring Fork River.
