In 2016, The City of Greeley worked on several drainage improvement projects in the Sunrise Neighborhood. A study was done to define and prioritize the drainage solutions for the Sunrise Neighborhood. Many of the existing storm sewers in the neighborhood were over 100-years-old, narrow, damaged, or failing. Through a series of projects the City has replaced many of the damaged or non-functioning pipes to improve drainage and reduce flood potential to properties and public areas.
Stormwater staff held public meetings, and visited ABC East in the neighborhood to teach children what was happening with the construction in their neighborhood and had all of the kids decorate and sign some of the stormwater pipes that were installed underground.
In 2017, Stormwater work will resume in the area along 9th Street and 6th Avenue to further improve the drainage system in the neighborhood.
