Last fall the Town approved the purchase of an existing gravel pit for the purpose of a new reservoir for water storage. In January the Town made the initial down payment.
Staff is working on a proposed scope and budget for the design of the pump stations and associated pipes to allow water to be transferred to and from the St. Vrain River and the irrigation ditchs that deliver water to the reservoir.
The Town will also start the legal process of securing a water right to allow the Town to take water from the river at times when there is excess flow.
This facility will be a key element in the planned non-potable water irrigation system the Town will use to irrigate parks with.
