Library Park Water and Sewer Improvements


From May - September 2018, Fort Collins Utilities will replace old and undersized water and sewer infrastructure in the Old Town Library Park neighborhood.

At nearly 100 years old, the current 4-inch waterlines are some of the oldest in the city and are beginning to show signs of restricted flows and reduced water quality.

The larger, upgraded infrastructure will improve:

  • water quality
  • reliability
  • fire safety by providing additional water flow

The aged sanitary sewer infrastructure also will be upgraded to prevent future drainage concerns.

What to Expect

Trenchless technologies will be used to minimize street excavation. New PVC pipe will be installed and periodic disruptions to water services will be necessary to connect services to the new waterlines. Customers will be notified prior to shutoff.

Home and business access will remain open, however road closures will limit parking and driveway access.

Temporary sidewalk fencing and detour routes will be clearly marked for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

Large construction operations, including heavy equipment, dirt hauling and associated noise and dust will be present during the construction period.
