Infrastructure Improvements

Second Creek Pipeline  

The Second Creek Pipeline is new infrastructure, approximately 17 miles long, to be constructed by Metro Water Recovery. This new pipeline will enable portions of Adams County, Aurora, Brighton, Commerce City, Denver, and Denver International Airport to be served by Metro’s Northern Treatment Plant. 

These partner agencies worked with Metro to develop the Second Creek Basin Regional Master Plan. This collaborative effort identified the Second Creek Pipeline and its First Creek Segment as the best long-term solution to address rapid regional growth and better connect Metro’s system with the 2.2 million Coloradans it serves. 

Additional benefits of this gravity-powered pipeline may include: 

  • Closing up to five existing pump stations
  • Reducing energy use and carbon footprint
  • Reducing long-term maintenance and operating costs
