Here’s a release from Northglenn Water via (Celeste Olinger). From the article:

Work has begun on a major capital improvement project as excavation is underway for construction of an additional clear well for the city.

The overall project consists of the construction of a new clear well at the Northglenn Water Treatment Plant, located at 2350 W. 112th Ave.

A clear well is a large water storage tank where chemicals are injected into the filtered water as a disinfectant. The clear well will provide adequate detention time to allow for the disinfection of any bacterial water contamination during peak flow and will meet the new requirements set forth by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment regulations.

This project is in its initial stage and the city has partnered with The Engineering Company (TEC) to complete the design and construction administrative services and with Jennison Construction Company for construction of the clear well. Currently, digging is underway to accommodate a 330,000-gallon clear well at the Water Treatment Plant. On May 28, City Council approved CR-66, a resolution approving construction of the clear well addition and authorizing $1,802,161 from the 2009 CIP?Budget Water Connection Fund for the project.

Northglenn’s Water Treatment Plant provides safe drinking water to its residents and is in compliance with state and federal drinking water standards and regulations. The clear well addition will assist the city in continuing to maintain its high standards and continuous operations.

This major capital improvement project is scheduled to be complete in March 2010.
