College Avenue Waterline

May-September 2014


Fort Collins Utilities replaced a 1930s 4-inch cast iron waterline in College Avenue from Mulberry to Buckeye streets (one block south of Pitkin Street) with 8-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe.

Replacement of the 80-year old waterline enhanced water system reliability and improved fire protection in the area. The project occurred in advance of the Highway 287 (College Avenue) Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) paving project in 2015.
