Stormwater Improvement Projects
Clearview Channel Rehabilitation
The Clearview Channel Rehabilitation project between Briarwood Road and Hillcrest Drive began in May 2014. Utilities Stormwater crews rebuilt the channel to repair eroded areas, prevent future erosion, improve maintenance access and enhance channel habitat.
Boxelder Stormwater Improvements on Prospect Road
Fort Collins Utilities began construction of stormwater improvements under Prospect Road near Boxelder Creek in March 2016. At the same time, City Engineering began replacement of an existing bridge over Boxelder Creek. Both projects were built under one road closure (Prospect Road) to minimize traffic impacts.
Dry Creek Drainage Improvement Project
The Dry Creek Drainage Improvement Project was constructed to protect people and properties within the Dry Creek Basin and reduce or eliminate the FEMA regulatory floodplain for Dry Creek in the city limits.
Northeast College Corridor Outfall Phases 1 and 2
Utilities is improving storm drainage as part of the ongoing Northeast College Corridor Outfall Project (NECCO). Portions of the floodplain in the Alta Vista neighborhood were removed as a result of these improvements.
Canal Importation Ponds & Outfall Project
Construction on the Canal Importation Ponds & Outfall (CIPO) Drainage Improvement Project began in fall 2007. The completed project greatly reduced flood risk east of the New Mercer Ditch.
West Vine Outfall Project
In 2003, the City of Fort Collins and Larimer County adopted the West Vine Basin Master Drainage Plan. Improvements to help alleviate flooding during a 100-year storm, including detention ponds, channels, storm sewers, culverts and spill structures from the irrigation canals.
Plum Street Sanitary & Storm Drainage Improvements Project
In coordination with The District at Campus West development on Plum Street, Fort Collins Utilities removed, replaced and up-sized portions of the existing sanitary sewer line and storm drainage system along Plum and Shields streets and City Park Avenue.
Lincoln/Willow Storm Sewer Upgrades
From January 2015 - May 2016, Fort Collins Utilities replaced old and undersized storm sewer infrastructure in the Downtown River District. The project improved drainage, added water quality treatment and increased safety for area properties and transportation systems.
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
An undersized stormwater system and aging sanitary mains were replaced in Remington Street from Spring Park Drive to Prospect Road from February to August 2020. This project improved wastewater operations and drainage and flood protection in the neighborhood.
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. DSIP will address the five major stormwater projects remaining in the downtown area.
Poudre River Bank Improvements
Streambank erosion in recent years had resulted in an area of severe bank erosion along the Poudre River near Homestead Natural Area. Utilities construction crews started reconstruction of the damaged bank December 2019, rebuilding 250 linear feet of the riverbank along the northwest side of the Homestead Natural Area.
