Greeley's Public Works Department has a Stormwater Division that develops city drainage standards, reviews flood impact issues, more. We need residents on the Stormwater Board to work with the division and make recommendations to the city council on priorities, policies, funding, and more.
One of the projects that the board is a part of is the planning of the 12th Street Outfall Capital Improvement Project that will run until 2036. This project will help with flooding issues in and around the downtown area. It will do that by collecting rain and stormwater, getting contaminates out, and letting it run into the river.
Another important development with Greeley’s Stormwater Division is a new camera van that begins operating in early 2022 to provide real-time condition data on the city's stormwater infrastructure. This will be a great tool for the city to prioritize capital improvement projects of the 100-year-old system.
Participation on the board contributes to the community. "This is a great way to participate in planning for the future of a critical piece of Greeley's utility infrastructure and quality of life for our residents," Said Stormwater Manager Karen Reynolds.
