To begin construction in unincorporated Weld County, the County requires a Use by Special Review (USR) Permit. Thornton is working to secure this permit so we can begin construction and complete this project by 2025. Weld County has scheduled hearings on Thornton’s permit application. A Planning Commission hearing was held on July 21, 2020. A Board of County Commissioners hearing was held on May 5, 2021.
Pressure testing of the pipeline and revegetation were completed in October 2021. Over the next year or longer, Thornton will be monitoring revegetation and reseeding grass as necessary to restore landscape to the condition that existed before construction of the pipeline.
