We are headed to the Greeley History Museum History Brown Bag tomorrow, Feb. 27 at 12pm, to learn about “Greeley Water Past, Present, and Future.” Harold Evans will discuss the history of Greeley Water since 1870, starting with the construction of Union Colony Canal #3. He will also talk about the future of Greeley Water and what Greeley is doing to supply Greeley’s water needs in 2065. Join us!

Pictured: The Greeley #3 ditch was built in 1870 in association with the establishment of the Union Colony (now Greeley). Its 13-mile length was dug by horses, oxen and mules, as well as by volunteers who used pick axes, shovels and plows to dredge up the dirt. Today, Greeley #3 continues to be a vital asset to the Greeley community.
