The Terry Ranch Water Project is an innovative water supply and storage project that will help fulfill the water needs of Greeley's growing population. The Terry Ranch Project will serve Greeley water only in times of drought; it will not replace our large surface supplies. Greeley is absolutely not selling or trading any of our water supplies in lieu of this project. This generational project will be another step forward to ensure the City of Greeley's long-term future water security. The water will not be needed/used for several years and will help save the city millions in water acquisition costs.
Hear Mick Todd, vice chairman of the Greeley water and sewer board, discuss the Terry Ranch project:
The City of Greeley has an extensive water system that includes two treatment plants, seven reservoirs, four river basins, and over 600 miles of pipeline. These systems make up Greeley's reliable water supply.
Today, ensuring a reliable water supply in the face of anticipated population growth and the consequences of a variable climate requires a high level of investment, innovative thinking and strategic planning. These principles are what have positioned Greeley to date as a regional leader in water resources.
