Improving the safety and reliability of our aging system
Denver Water’s North System brings snowmelt from the mountains through reservoirs, pipelines and a treatment plant to produce clean, great-tasting drinking water. Denver Water is upgrading and modernizing the northern portion of our water system. We are building a new water treatment plant, installing a new pipeline and redeveloping our Moffat Treatment Plant. When finished, the system will be more resilient and adaptable to changing demands for water now and into the future.
Feb. 18, 2020: West 50th Drive and Lupine Street is closed while the pipeline is being installed. Detour signs are in place. This is anticipated to last 7-14 days.
There are traffic impacts on Isabell Street between West 48th Avenue and Indiana Street while cleanup and restoration take place.
