The water transmission system delivers water from Bellvue and Boyd Water Treatment Plants to Greeley’s city limits. Greeley has long transmission lines, which makes operation and maintenance challenging. Although long transmission lines make operation and maintenance difficult, treating water closer to the source results in better water quality.
Greeley has 140.5 miles of transmission pipeline. Four pipes deliver 19.5 million gallons per day 36 miles by gravity from the Bellvue Water Treatment Plant to Greeley. Water in the Boyd Transmission Line is pumped 20 miles to Greeley. Forty million gallons per day can go through this line.

Greeley Water Pipeline
The Greeley Water and Sewer Department is building a 30-mile, 60-inch diameter pipeline that will transport drinking water from its Bellvue Water Treatment Plant northwest of Fort Collins to Greeley . The pipeline will add capacity to Greeley 's existing lines in the area, originally built between 1907 and 1952. Greeley 's proposed route has been approved by Larimer County , but the City still must conduct site surveys, geologic and biological investigations and analyses before finalizing the pipeline path across individual properties. The project began in 2003 and is being completed in several segments with a projected completion date of 2013.
