We shared a Coloradoan article last July about oil wells causing concern for the proposed location for the Galeton Reservoir. Today, the Coloradoan published an update that the reservoir is indeed going to relocate.
Northern Water is moving forward with a new location for a proposed reservoir northeast of Greeley that is part of its Northern Integrated Supply Project after about two dozen oil and gas wells became a roadblock.
The new proposed site of Galeton Reservoir is roughly 10 miles east of Ault, near the intersection of Colorado Highway 14 and Weld County Road 51. It’s just across the highway from the original proposed site, which was on the south side of Colorado 14.
