Staff issued a Request for Qualifications/Proposals for a Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for the project and a CM/GC was selected and a contract was authorized for preconstruction services.

The design team is finishing work on the Site Development Plan modification and the team is completing the modifications and responses as appropriate.  A neighborhood meeting was held on June 29, 2022.  A study session on the project was held on January 17, 2023 for staff to receive direction from Council.  The project was presented to the Land Use Review Commission on July 24, 2023.

The Burns & McDonnell agreement for a preliminary design and feasibility report was approved by Council in July 2021.  The report included the size and number of both potable and reuse tanks needed, confirmed the need and size of the booster pump stations, layout of the site for the tanks, booster pump stations, utility lines and access, provided a probable cost estimate and schedule, reviewed the water and reuse modeling for the service areas and developed a comprehensive scope to complete the design of the Tank Project.  Council approved a consulting agreement for design and development of construction documents at the April 26, 2022 meeting.  A design kickoff meeting was held on May 9, 2022.

Background Information

Broomfield needs the ability to store additional water, specifically in the areas north of W. 144th Avenue and a tract of land in Anthem Filing 24 was dedicated for future water tanks.  If development continues without the necessary water infrastructure, there will be inadequate storage and supply for fire flows. Regular, peak hour usage will result in inadequate water supply and pressures to the higher elevation properties. 

Broomfield’s water system model identifies capital improvements which will be needed as Broomfield develops. The model specifically focuses on the phased development of the areas north of W. 144th Avenue that are quickly developing.  In anticipation of the future water tanks, a tract of land was dedicated to Broomfield with the platting of Anthem Filing 24 in 2016, and was included in the approved site development plan.  Due to the necessary hydraulic grade elevation, a booster pump system is expected to be required.
