La Poudre Pump Station & Slurry Wall
Project Location: Windsor, Colorado
This design-build project included a soil-bentonite cutoff wall (also known as a slurry wall) and a pump station off the Cache La Poudre River in Windsor. The pump station incorporated 3 vertical turbine pumps that can pump from 20 CFS all the way down to 2 CFS. The pumps were housed in a masonry block building approximately 5,000 SF.
The cutoff wall lined two cells which totaled approximately 8,000 LF with an average depth of 24 FT plus a 3 FT key into bedrock. The reservoir has approximately 1050 AF of storage.
