The Greeley City Council on Tuesday gave City Attorney Doug Marek permission to pursue legal actions, including potential lawsuits, against the construction and engineering firms tasked with a $25 million renovation of the city’s Bellvue Water Treatment facility completed in 2020.

Built in 1907 at the mouth of the Poudre Canyon in Bellvue – 36 miles from town – the facility is responsible for processing the vast majority of Greeley’s water. In 2016, Greeley contracted with HDR Inc. of Omaha, Neb., to design the first major improvements to the facility since 1947. In 2017, Greeley contracted with Hydro Construction Inc. of Fort Collins to perform the work, which was completed in June 2020. Read more.
