Brighton plans groundbeaking for water treatment plant


The ground-breaking ceremony for Brighton's new water treatment plant is set for 10 a.m.  July 26, at the site of the new plant, 4350 E. Bromley Lane.

The project is meant to replace Brighton's current plant, and, according to a written statement from the city, will solve the capacity limits of the current facility, provide safe and clean water and will produce an additional 10 million gallons of treated drinking water per day.

 The work is expected to be finished by 2025.  When that happens, the city says the plant should be able to provide water treatment to meet growth needs until 2045. The city also said the new plant will eliminate the need to depend on water supplies from Thornton and Denver water, "eliminate costly brine discharge and utilize the latest water treatment technology.

Brown & Caldwell, an environmental engineering and construction form, is in charge of the $155 million project. The construction partner is Garney Construction. 

"The project will consist of organic carbon removal, greensand filters for removing manganese and turbidity, chemical storage and pumping," the city statement said..

“The groundbreaking will mark the beginning of Brighton’s biggest water project in the city’s history,” said Marc Johns, interim director of utilities in the city statement. “The new water plant is much needed considering the state of our current water treatment plant and the city’s water needs for the future. We are looking forward to starting this exciting project.”

Work begins in August. Foundation work begins in December.
