Water Construction Projects

Capital Improvement Projects or CIPs are important for improving, maintaining and developing the city’s water and wastewater facilities. 

Each year, city staff develops a plan for CIPs that should be accomplished during the coming year, and also plan for projects that may need to occur in the future.  Capital Improvement Projects are construction or infrastructure projects that cost more than $5,000 and can be depreciated in value over time.

Lift Station A Improvements - Northglenn Underground
Lift Station A is a pump station that collects wastewater from the south side of the city and moves it into the 11-mile force main that sends sewage to the city’s Wastewater Treatment Plant.  This aging structure is in need of repairs to improve capacity, system redundancy and replace aging pumps with new, more efficient pumps.

  • Estimated Cost: $3,500,000 in 2018 and $25,000,000 in 2020

Bunker Hill Lift Station
Bunker Hill Lift Station is a pump station that collects wastewater for the city north of 120th 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 (MGD) to 1.3 million.

  • Estimated Cost: $2,000,000

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 1960s 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 is allocated each year for replacing water lines
Terminal Reservoir Phase II

Following an emergency pipeline repair at the city’s Water Treatment Plant, it was determined that in order to continuously supply water to the plant, a second redundant line leading into the plant was necessary.  This project will install a second delivery line to feed water from Standley Lake into the city’s Terminal Reservoir at the Water Treatment Plant. The project will begin in 2019.

  • Estimated Cost: $500,000
  • Schedule: Construction to start the third quarter of 2019. Project completion by the second quarter of 2020.

Update to the City's Standards and Specifications

In order to stay up-to-date with current engineering practices, the City will be updating its Standards and Specifications. The City's Standards and Specifications are used by all contractors doing work within the City and help define minimum work standards.

  • Estimated Cost: $120,000

Terminal Reservoir Influent Pipeline 
Council unanimously approved a contract with American West Construction for the repair and replacement of the Water Treatment Plant terminal reservoir influent pipeline. This pipeline is the main source of raw water for the plant coming from Standley Lake. 

  • Estimated Cost: $765,306
  • Scheduled Completion Date: April 30, 2019
