The Gold Hill Pipeline Project connects treatment plants and enhance the resilience of the water system.
Greeley, Colorado: $13.82 million
The city of Greeley relies on two water treatment plants, Bellevue and Boyd, to supply water to about 152,000 residents. However, the current transmission system lacks a connection between the two plants. This makes the system vulnerable to water shortages and rationing if one plant needs to be taken offline.
The Gold Hill Pipeline Project aims to build a pipeline that will allow treated water to flow in two directions. This will help to close the gap in the transmission network. This project will enhance the system's resilience to climate-related hazards such as droughts, wildfires, and cyberattacks.
By connecting the transmission pipelines, the project will increase flexibility in water management. It will also maximize the benefits of diversified water sources and make sure the system can respond effectively to potential threats. The pipeline will let the city transfer water between the two treatment plants, mitigate shortages, and make the water system more resilient.
