The Thornton Water Project is a pipeline in Larimer and Weld Counties that will bring water purchased in the 1980s to Thornton customers.
Thornton is in the land use permitting and easement acquisition stage of the Project, and team members are currently contacting landowners along the proposed pipeline corridor to discuss constructing on their property.
The specific location of the pipeline has not been determined for the majority of the corridor. We have identified a specific alignment and location for the pipeline in portions of southern Weld County, and we are working with property owners to acquire the necessary easements for the pipeline in those locations.
We anticipate that the pipeline diameter will be in the 48-inch range and it will be buried with some appurtenances and access points above ground.
