Loveland, CO: Big Thompson River Diversion

Posted by Content Coordinator on Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

“Many Colorado communities are still reeling from the devastating flood this fall. One such community, Loveland, is dealing with the aftereffects of a distressed water system that was left damaged from the flood… As a direct result of the flood’s damage, eroding river banks were getting closer to the area’s 48-inch water transmission line, which was the last pipe of three main lines that bring treated water to the town. It was determined that the best solution would be to force the river water away from the pipe. Something drastic had to be done, so it was decided to bring in trees to lie across the channel to create a dam to divert the river. “
