Ongoing Projects


The Town of Nederland Utilities Department is continuing its rehabilitation of the existing sewer infrastructure over the coming months.  This project began in 2014 as a response to the 2013 floods.  The floods created and exposed certain weaknesses in the system that have been identified and systematically repaired over the past two years.  Phase III is the continuation of that work and is being funded by a State Grant for “Small Communities”.

The Town has contracted C&L Water Solutions to complete this year’s portion of the work.  C&L will perform a variety of different types of work, including excavation point repairs, lateral (service) repairs, manhole repair and trenchless Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP).  CIPP represents the bulk of the project and is a unique technology that allows for complete repair of the existing pipe without having to excavate and replace it.  The link below will briefly explain the CIPP process that C&L will perform.

The goal of this project is to repair as many linear feet of pipe as possible as well as targeted repairs of problem areas to limit the amount of infiltration and exfiltration of ground water throughout The Towns collection system.  Over the past two years, we have seen vast improvements in the system based on the work done in Phase I and Phase II.  The link below highlights some of the work that has been completed to date.

Also below, is a link to a map of the affected areas throughout Town.  If you are in an area where work is to be performed, you will receive further instructions/notifications closer to the actual date of work.  If you have any questions or concerns about the project, please contact the Nederland Waste Water Plant at 303.258.3088.

Thank you for your cooperation during this important rehabilitation project.

The NedPeds Project kicked off in early June 2016. The project, which will improve storm water facilities, roadways and paths along Highway 72/2nd Street between the RTD Park n Ride and East Street, will restart in June 2017 to finalize a permeable asphalt cap on East 2nd Street and complete a few additional repairs. The project is supported by funds from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Nederland Downtown Development Authority (NDDA). The work also builds upon extensive repairs to the underground utilities along the route (particularly East 2nd Street) made after the September 2013 floods, utilizing cure-in-place pipe lining that did not require the roadway being dug up to complete repairs.

For questions on the project, contact Alex or Todd from F&D International (project owner’s representatives) at or

10/10/2016: Work on concrete “ribbon curbs” that form the outside of the pathways throughout the project is completing. Stabilized crusher fines will be added to form the main part of the final paths. Most pathways are complete, with portions of the 2nd Street area and spurs to go this week. Driveways on the Highway 72 portion of the project are prepared to receive asphalt mid-week, and striping for crosswalks is scheduled to follow, completing the highway segment of the project. Traffic controllers will assist with this part of the project this Wednesday and Thursday. Asphalt will also be poured at the intersection of Snyder and 2nd Streets at that time. Final walk through of the project for the season will occur this Friday, to establish any punch-list work to be completed before buttoning up the project for the season. Contractors will return next spring to finalize the permeable road material at 2nd Street.

10/3/2016: As of 4:00 PM, 2nd Street is fully open.

07/29/2016: The contractor will be working on the remainder of work left on Highway 72, East Street and Snyder Street over the next 7 days. That will complete all work outside of East 2nd Street. The project team will be reaching out to 2nd Street neighbors next week to coordinate a block meeting to go over what to expect on their part of the project.

07/22/2016: The contractor expects to finish pathway work on Highway 72 early next week, finishing with gravel fill and then moving to pouring the concrete curbing. Also to be completed will be retention walls to support bus stop improvements and pathway connection at East Street and Highway 119 at the east end of the project. The bus stop pad will also be poured, preparing for installation of a new bus shelter and bench.

07/06/2016: The contractor has excavated pathways throughout the project and begun filling them with gravel to be compacted into a walking surface, beginning along Highway 72 near the library, as well as along East Street near the post office. Next week, concrete curbing will be installed to hold in the pathway materials. Drainage piping is being updated along the way.

06/17/2016: The contractor finished utility locates and started digging for the trail along East Street this week. Structural fill for the walking pathways was delivered.

06/09/2016: Construction associated with the NEDPEDs project has started in earnest.  Most of the work that has taken place over the past two weeks has been focused primarily on: staging and stockpiling of key project material items, surveying, asphalt removal, and setting up storm water control measures.  Over the next coming week, excavation work will start to commence along the north side of Highway 72.  The work along Hwy 72 is about creating a sustainable porous shoulder, pedestrian pathway, and storm water piping and inlets.
