One of the most challenging tunneling projects in the world

Approximately 90% of the drinking water delivered to customers in southern Nevada comes from the Colorado River, which is captured at Lake Mead. Construction of this new intake ensures that full system capacity can be maintained at low lake levels. The $520M project consisted of a 600-foot deep intake, new 900 MGD pumping station, and 3 miles of up to 20-foot inside diameter water supply tunnel. Read More

Fossil Creek Trail is a set of two separate paved pathways, totaling 5.3 miles, running through neighborhoods and local parks that the City of Fort Collins is working on connecting.
