Denver Water Operations Campus Redevelopment

Phase One construction of 35 acre redevelopment project


Iron Woman provided environmental remediation for the on-going redevelopment of the 35-acre Denver Water Operations Complex Redevelopment project. The first phase of construction involved the water utility’s operational areas and required remediation of contaminated soil and non-hazardous waste to support building construction and site redevelopment. Iron Woman was able to meet an aggressive remediation schedule, while working with multiple trades across the site. At the same time, we were able to work with the owner and the client to identify remedial and construction alternatives to identify the best value for all stakeholders. We met these project constraints through strong coordination with Mortenson to map out an appropriate sequencing plan for the work.

Iron Woman’s environmental tasks included:

Environmental: Environmental Remediation

  • Developed a Materials Management Plan on behalf of Denver Water
  • Remediated a previously unknown 10,000 gallon Leaking Underground Storage Tank
  • Excavation, transportation and disposal of approximately 20,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil and non-hazardous waste
  • Prepared all waste profiles and manifests for appropriate execution
  • Implemented Vehicle Tracking Control Pads to minimize off-site sediment tracking

Civil: Excavation & Utility Installation

  • Constructed stormwater management ponds and related piping, including permitting for ROW work
  • Responsible for backfill and site grading associated with civil and environmental activities
  • Supported non-environmental related hauling for Mortenson and Denver Water

Denver Water

Denver Water is responsible for the collection, storage, quality control and distribution of potable and non-potable water to 1.4 million customers in Denver and the surrounding metropolitan region. Both Denver Water and Colorado as a whole have challenges ahead as the population grows in this semi-arid climate. The campus redevelopment will provide a sustainable environment for the central planning of this crucial natural resource to one of the most populated parts of the state.
