First phase of $4 million stormwater project to mitigate Monument Creek runoff completed

Richard Mulledy doesn’t expect any “hiccups” during the second phase of a $4 million stormwater project to stop erosion into Monument Creek near the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs – work that is part of a larger commitment to Pueblo. “We’re right on schedule,” said Mulledy, the city’s water resources engineering division manager. Colorado Springs officials announced last week the completion of the first phase of a project that focuses on a nearly 2-mile stretch of Monument Branch between Voyager Parkway and Monument Creek on the city’s north side, all while restoring the area’s natural habitat that was hit hard by significant flooding in 2013 and 2015. This phase broke ground in November.
