Red Cliff regularly exceeds the capacity of its current sewer- and water-treatment facility and has repeatedly been cited by the state of Colorado for discharges into the Eagle River.
County and town officials have been working to get some money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to help fix the facility.
