Greeley Council Approves Windy Gap Resolution

On March 4 the City Council approved an agreement between the City and Northern Water for the Fourth Phase of the Windy Gap Firming Project. It included approval for environmental and other permitting, engineering studies, preliminary design and land acquisition. Greeley’s share of the cost for the 4th phase is $162,451.

While the Final Environmental Impact Statement for Windy Gap was issued in November 2011, there are several major steps that must be completed to the design and construction of the project’s 90,000 acre-foot Chimney Hollow Reservoir near Carter Lake. It’s estimated that the new reservoir could be operational in another six years (2020).
