West Vine Outfall Project


In 2003, the City of Fort Collins and Larimer County adopted the West Vine Basin Master Drainage Plan (PDF 33KB). Improvements to help alleviate flooding during a 100-year storm include detention ponds, channels, storm sewers, culverts and spill structures from the irrigation canals.

Funding for the project will come from Stormwater utility fees collected from city and county residents and dedicated to stormwater improvements.

The project is the first step in alleviating flooding and improving water quality in the West Vine drainage basin.

Design is complete and construction begins November 2013. The project will be completed by summer with final landscaping and restoration continuing into fall 2014.

The Poudre Trail will be closed from mid-November to early spring for construction, a detour route will be in place during that time.
