Other components of the project are also showing progress. Last fall, construction crews placed the final section of the Chimney Hollow Conduit to bring water from the Colorado-Big Thompson’s Project Bald Mountain Interconnect to the new reservoir’s valve house at the base of the dam. In 2024, the valve house will have its 43 valves installed to provide safe and accurate delivery of water.
More features of work are underway and will help crews get a running start on the final full year of construction in 2024. The project is anticipated to be completed in late summer 2025.
