Project Description

Koenig Reservoir is located near Fort Lupton, Colorado. The design-build soil bentonite slurry cut off wall was constructed in 1999 by Hall-Irwin Construction. The length of the wall is 4,850 linear feet and has a maximum depth of 47 feet.

Weld County completed the gravel excavation on Koenig Reservoir during the fall 2016.
