Plumb Ditch Extension

Plumb Ditch Extension

Greeley, Colorado

New ditch construction on the Plumb Ditch east of Greeley, Colorado was completed during the summer of 2007.

Construction of new turnout and bridge.

This work included construction of 2,600 feet of new ditch, as well as new turnouts and measuring devices on the existing ditch. Because construction occurred during the normal operating season, bypasses routing the live ditch around the work areas were designed and constructed.

Structures designed included concrete box culverts beneath road crossings, concrete diversion structures, Parshall and long-throated flumes, undershot and overtopping control gates.
