Greeley Water Transmission and Pipeline

Water Transmission

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 challenges. Although long transmission lines make operation and maintenance difficult, treating water closer to the source results in better water quality. Greeley has 166 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 Pipeline

60-inch-DIP-sta.-82+00The Greeley Water and Sewer Department is building a 60-inch diameter pipeline that transports drinking water from the Bellvue Water Treatment Plant northwest of Fort Collins to the Gold Hill Reservior and water tower in west Greeley. The pipeline adds capacity to Greeley's existing lines in the area, originally built between 1907 and 1952. The project began in 2003 and is being completed in several segments. Approximately, 25 of the 29 miles of pipeline is completed and in service. 

Staff is currently working on the last segment of the project. This includes easement acquisition and final design. Construction is planned in 2020-2021.
