Poudre River diversion 24’ deep, 20’ wide and 240’ long, river flows were diverted half at a time to bring process piping and electrical duct bank from the cheese plant to the future treatment plant. Larger diameter pipe was used to shift the river flow. Diversion piping was installed 3/4 of the way across the river and then backfilled to allow the flow from the river to continue. Poudre River was restored to pre-construction condition upon completion of the pipeline work.
