Windy Gap Firming Project - Water for Our Future

Broomfield is one of the few communities in the Colorado Front Range to have secured the water rights to serve the community at full buildout. As one of eight counties participating in the Windy Gap Project, Broomfield will be the biggest beneficiary when the Windy Gap Firming Project is complete.

The Windy Gap Firming Project will increase the reliability of, or "firm," the Windy Gap Project supply; a diversion dam on the Colorado River, a 445-acre-foot reservoir, a pump plan, and a six-mile pipeline to Lake Granby; by making efficient use of its existing water rights. The firming project's key feature is a new reservoir called Chimney Hollow, which would be built to provide dedicated water storage for 13 municipal providers.

With construction slated to take about five years, Chimney Hollow Reservoir could be operational by 2020.
