The story of water diversion on Grizzly Creek begins in 1888 when the Grizzly Creek flume was built to help No Name Creek supply clean water for the fledgling Glenwood Springs.
By the early twentieth century this effort was not adequate for the growing city’s thirst. So a tunnel was blasted through the mountain to replace the flume.”
For ninety years rock slides and avalanches damaged the Grizzly Creek pipeline. It was replaced with enormous effort in 1999. A state-of-the-art system, it now carries water to Glenwood Springs.
