The Globeville Landing Outfall (GLO) Project will upgrade the stormwater management infrastructure to meet a 100-year flood capacity and expand and redesign the Globeville Landing Park. For more information on the stormwater systems program, visit www.denvergov.org/plattetoparkhill.
Portions of GLO are located within the VB/I-70 Superfund site, which includes the former Omaha & Grant Smelter site located on the Denver Coliseum property. Through investigations from the EPA, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), and the City of Denver, the area has been found to contain heavy metal contamination in the soils and groundwater.
The City, with the (EPA and CDPHE, is working to protect the health of residents and the environment during construction of GLO.
GLO allows the opportunity to make Globeville Landing Park a more desirable park for the community by:
- improving connectivity
- reclaiming the concrete culvert as park land
- adding a natural open channel with vegetation that will move storm water safely
- improving the overall park design
The construction for GLO will run through a portion of the VB/I-70 Superfund site.
During construction, the City and County of Denver, with CDPHE and EPA will coordinate to monitor and minimize odors or impacts to air quality.
During construction, there are a few ways to stay connected to the GLO Project and to the Platte to Park Hill Program:
