EAGLE COUNTY Another segment of the regional trail system was opened between the communities of Eagle and Gypsum. The 2.7 miles of trail were completed to provide an alternative transportation route as well as a recreation option to citizens of the two towns, and all county residents and visitors. This project would not have been possible without the enthusiasm of Eagle County Road and Bridge Department and the support of the neighbors in the area, most notably the Seago family who provided the easement to make the connection to Eagle a possibility said Ellie Caryl, Program Manager of ECO Trails. They were many people, agencies and companies involved in the project, and we are very grateful for their support.Work on finishing touches will continue through the fall. Users should remain alert for warning signs and work crews. A 750-foot section will remain unpaved until an acceleration lane about 1 mile west of Eagle is finished, which should happen this fall or next spring. To access the trail from Eagle, use Violet Lane on the north side of the Sylvan Lake Road roundabout. On the Gypsum end, the trail begins at the intersection of Highway 6 and Cooley Mesa Road.

VAIL Each of Eagle River Water and Sanitation District plants in Vail, Avon, and Edwards has successfully completed a voluntary self-certification process, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.Permits are issued for a period of five years and normally require annual on-site inspections. State official determined that many major wastewater treatment facilities have excellent compliance histories and are not in need of annual compliance inspections. All three of Eagle River Water & Sanitation Districts treatment plants fit the criteria for excellent compliance history and were invited to join the voluntary program. Were very proud to have been asked to participate in the initial year of the program, said Jim Edwards, supervisor of the Vail Wastewater Treatment Plant.
