From Utility Infrastructure Management:

Garney is teamed with CH2M Hill as the design-builder for the 24 mgd Northern Treatment Plant, which will be part of the Metro District’s service to about 1.7 million people. Existing facilities are expected to soon reach capacity, according to Metro District Manager Catherine R. Gerali, but the new facility in the in the northern metropolitan Denver region will be one of the most advanced in the western United States. The plant is expected to be fully operational by December of 2015.

In Colorado Springs, Garney will construct approximately 6.4 miles of 66-inch steel pipeline, a portion of the Southern Delivery System (SDS) Raw Water Transmission Pipeline. Once completed, the SDS will bring water from the Arkansas River to Colorado Springs, Fountain, Security and Pueblo West, ensuring uninterrupted water for homes and businesses, even as other aging pipelines require repair. Water delivery from SDS is expected to begin in 2016.
