Water Construction Projects

Capital Improvement Projects or CIPs are important for improving, maintaining and developing the city’s water and wastewater facilities as well as its infrastructure.  Each year city staff develops a plan for CIPs to be accomplished during the coming year as well as plan for projects in upcoming years.

Bunker Hill Lift Station
Bunker Hill Lift Station collects wastewater for residents who live north of 1st Avenue and sends sewage to the Wastewater Treatment Plant.  With the development of the Karl's Farm area, the capacity of the pump will be increased from .5 million gallons per day (MG D) to 1.3 MG D.
Estimated Cost: $2 million
Project Duration: 3 years (2019-2021)

Filter to Waste Automation
This project will enhance operation of the filters used in the treatment process at the Water Treatment Facility, which in turn will improve the finished water turbidity. 
Estimated Cost: $180,000
Project Duration: 2 years (2020-2021)

Northglenn Underground Project

Northglenn Underground Project consists of  two components, upgrades to Lift Station A and replacement of the 11-miles Force Main.   After 40 years of service, the aging Lift Station A structure is in need of repairs and the Force Main infrastructure needs replaced.
Estimated Cost: $28.5 million
Project Duration: 5 years (2018-2023)

Solids Handling Improvements
Approximately 40 to 60 million gallons of water per year at the Water Treatment Facility is transferred to the Wastewater Treatment Plant for processing and return to the watershed.  With the implementation of a solids handling structure, at least 80% of that water will be recycled back into the drinking water treatment process.
Estimated Cost: $300,000
Project Duration: 2 years (2020-2021)

Water Infrastructure Replacement Program

Funds are set aside each year to replace sections of water distribution lines throughout the city.  Much of the city’s water infrastructure was installed in the 1960's and is beginning to show its age.  Replacement of water lines reduces the risk of water line breaks, emergency repairs and interrupted water service.
Estimated Cost: $250,000
Project Duration: Annually (no end date)
