Projects and Improvements
Mail Creek Stream Rehabilitation Project
Stream rehabilitation and/or restoration projects repair areas of streams where the ecology, safety, structure and water quality have changed over time. The Mail Creek Project will reshape and stabilize the eroding banks along a specific section of Mail Creek to improve safety and habitat.
Remington Street Stormwater Improvements & Sewer Line Replacement February
An undersized stormwater system and aging sanitary mains will be replaced in Remington Street from Spring Park Drive to Prospect Road from February to July. This project will improve wastewater operations and drainage and flood protection in the neighborhood. By providing a larger capacity stormwater connection from the Prospect/College intersection to Spring Creek, it also will reduce flooding issues at this major intersection.
2020 Water, Sewer, Stormwater Infrastructure Improvements
In 2020, Utilities crews will construct:
- 11 waterline projects, totaling 9,800 feet of 6- and 8-inch diameter pipe
- 11 wastewater (sanitary sewer) projects, totaling 6,400 feet of 6-inch diameter pipe
- 9 stormwater projects, totaling 5,600 feet of pipe replacement and 1,000 feet of riverbank repair
Halligan Water Supply Project
Water and Wastewater Master Plan
Fort Collins Utilities is in the process of assessing and evaluating water and wastewater pipes and infrastructure to make informed decisions about upcoming projects.
The Water Distribution and Wastewater Collection Master Plan will guide Utilities in maintaining high-quality service and planning for the future.
Downtown Stormwater Improvement Plan (DSIP)
Downtown Fort Collins is at risk for flooding and pollution from urban stormwater runoff from downtown can impact the Cache la Poudre River. The need to address flooding and stormwater quality issues in the downtown area (Old Town Basin) have been identified since the early 1990s. The DSIP will address the five major stormwater projects remaining in the downtown area.
