La Poudre Slurry Wall & Pump Station

Project Location: Windsor, Colorado

Project Description:

The soil-bentonite cutoff wall (slurry 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.

This design-build project included a cutoff 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.
