With the expanding exploration for oil and gas in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, providing potable water and collecting, treating, reusing, and disposing of wastewater and the related residuals in remote areas are challenges that must be met. A major oil and gas producer is being proactive setting up centralized temporary living quarters for up to 450 of its workers and is planning to provide environmentally sound water and wastewater practices. The facility will be in operation around the clock 365 days per year providing food, lodging, emergency medical, and recreational amenities for oil and gas workers that rotate through the site for 2-week periods. The water usage is 190 cubic meters per day and wastewater production is 170 cubic meters per day.
