Ongoing Construction Projects

  • 8.3 MG Tank Valve Replacement Project: The City will be replacing the influent and effluent valves on the 8.3 MG water tank in preparation for the installation of a check valve and new effluent line for future use.
  • South Platte Interceptor Interconnect Project: The South Platte Interceptor Interconnect will convey sanitary sewage wastewater from the City of Brighton's Wastewater Treatment Plant to the new South Platte Interceptor. The South Platte Interceptor collects and conveys sanitary wastewater from the northern Metropolitan Denver area to Metro’s new Northern Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant.
  • Recreation Center Tributary and Augmentation Line Project: Located off of 19th Street near Jennifer Court, this project will be undertaken by the Tezak Heavy Equipment Company, and will replace an overly eroded man-made creek with a storm water conveyance structure. This conveyance structure will be one segment in a city-wide storm water system that channels water safely to the South Platte River during heavy rainfall events.
  • Indigo Trails Waterline Project: The project is comprised of a new water line that will connect existing waterlines in Solaire Apartment Complex and Wildflower Ct., located in Indigo Trails subdivision. The project is being performed by Excavation and Construction Specialists. This new waterline will add redundancy to the water distribution system of Indigo Trail subdivision.
