Loveland's Wastewater Treatment Plant is now known as the Loveland Water Reclamation Facility. Learn more about the recent completed expansion project.
The Wastewater Treatment Plant Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) and Digester Improvements project evolved through the need to meet three main objectives:
- Meeting regulatory requirements for the reduction of nitrogen and phosphorus released to the Big Thompson River.
- Increasing capacity to meet population growth. The plant will be re-rated from 10 million gallons per day (MGD) to 12 MGD allowing for an additional 15 to 20 years of growth.
- Replacement of aging infrastructure.
The project utilized the Collaborative Project Delivery model referred to in the industry as Construction Manager-at-Risk (CMAR).
- Over 2,000,000 working hours
- 887 working days
- Zero recordable loss-time injuries
- 5,900 cubic yards of concrete placed
- 706 million gallons of sewage successfully bypass pumped
- Zero discharge violations during construction
|Project Design June 2015 - April 2017|
|Project Construction April 2-17 - October 2019|
|Total Project Cost $41,020,000|
Construction at the Wastewater Treatment Plant began in May 2017. These activities were captured in time-lapse video updates.
Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Loveland Water and Power (LWP) made system improvements and rebuilt infrastructure damaged in the 2013 flood, including Circuit 911. Crews implemented the Circuit 911 voltage conversion project in three phases. The project included a variety of system improvements including installing new overhead power lines, repairing damaged infrastructure and replacing/rerouting existing overhead power lines.
The voltage conversion project provides customer with the following benefits:
- Improved power quality – less voltage fluctuations.
- Improved reliability – overhead lines built to ‘raptor-safe’ construction standards resulting in fewer outages and shorter duration outages.
- Ease of maintenance – positioning service drop transformers to front of lot locations, where possible, provides better access for LWP crews and reduces downtime during outages.
