Windsor Lake Automated Outlet Structure

Publication Date: 

Applegate Group was retained to design a new outlet for Windsor Lake. The addition of the outlet design allows Windsor Lake to function as an equalizer reservoir for the Greeley No. 2 canal, while providing flood storage for two distinct drainage basins in the Windsor area. The new automated outlet was designed to control irrigation releases up to the decreed canal capacity of 600 cfs, and flood releases up to the 100-yr flood event.
