The City of Montrose’s Water Master Plan identified the construction of a dedicated fill line to the city’s Sunnyside Tank from the main Project 7 supply line along Highway 50 as a priority capital improvement. To that end, the city constructed a new line between 6800 Road and the Sunnyside Tank in 2016.
The city has upsized an existing 12-inch line between Miami and Sunnyside roads along the 6800 Road alignment to a 24-inch line as shown in the accompanying figure.
