Water Conservation

The City of Greeley is proud to have a long history of water stewardship here in northern Colorado. Since 1907, we’ve provided safe, high-quality water supplies for our residents while ensuring a reliable supply for the future. One of the many ways we’re safeguarding your water supply is through water conservation. In fact, Greeley offers one of the most robust water conservation programs in Colorado.

With just over 13 inches of rainfall per year, Greeley is considered a semi-arid climate. This means local water supplies are scarce and must be used very wisely. To help customers save water indoors as well as outdoors, Greeley provides a wide range of water conservation programs and services that benefit a variety of water users.

Water Efficiency Plan

The City of Greeley’s Water Efficiency Plan is a roadmap of strategic objectives and water conservation programs to ensure future water supplies. The Water Efficiency Plan was approved by the Water and Sewer Board, Planning Commission and City Council in 2022. The main objectives of the plan are to maximize widespread efficiency in all indoor water use, set goals for more resilient landscapes, and educate customers on water use goals. It will provide direction on how to advance water conservation efforts and build citywide capacity to:

  • Create efficiencies and consistencies among policies, plans, projects, and programs
  • Maximize cost-saving opportunities
  • Create goals with clear measurements for success

Greeley Receives $13.8 Million to Fund Gold Hill Pipeline Project

Release Date:
Oct 11, 2023

Sean Chambers, Director of Water & Sewer

Greeley is receiving $13.8 million in grant funding from FEMA to help fund the Gold Hill Pipeline Project west of the city. Completion of the pipeline helps address potential water disruptions from wildfires, floods, and other hazards.

This funding is made available through the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities national competition. It is funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which will distribute $1.8 billion for resilience projects nationwide.

Greeley relies on two treatment plants to supply water to over 150,000 residents. However, the system is still vulnerable to water shortages and natural disasters.

The Gold Hill Transmission Pipeline Project enables the flow of treated water in two directions. It closes the gap in the transmission network. This connection increases flexibility in water management and reduces pumping costs in the fall and winter. It allows the city to benefit by further diversifying its water supplies. The project addresses a Weld County Hazard Mitigation Action Guide.

“While this project is critical to Greeley, it will further Northern Colorado regional water resiliency tested by recent wildfire events such as the Cameron Peak Fire, and it will protect Greeley and its connected systems from unforeseen future disasters,” said Mayor John Gates, Mayor, City of Greeley. “Further, the new transmission line project will reduce costs of daily operations for the city by reducing reliance on pumping to supply water to customers.”

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet welcomed the announcement from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“From longer and more extreme wildfire seasons to intensifying drought, climate change is affecting Coloradans in every corner of our state,” Bennet said. “This funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will allow Greeley to ensure its water infrastructure can continue serving its residents into the future.”

“The City of Greeley is very pleased to hear that our community will receive financial assistance for the Gold Hill Treated Water Transmission Pipeline Project,” said Sean Chamber, Greeley’s Water and Sewer Director. “This project adds further resiliency to our water system and helps us ensure safe and reliable water for generations in Greeley.”
