Distribution System

More than 650 miles of water lines deliver water to District customers. The District Engineer manages the development of distribution system service lines and connections through collaboration with area developers. Required adherence to the District’s standards and specifications ensure capacity and reliability within the system.

Once water is conveyed from the treatment plant to the District’s distribution system, the District’s Operations department is responsible for operating and maintaining the system to ensure reliability and water quality.  This includes meter reading, repair of leaks, water quality monitoring, routine maintenance, and customer service requests.

Treatment System

Raw water is conveyed from Carter Lake to the Carter Lake Filter Plant, jointly owned by the District and Central Weld County Water District.  The Carter Lake Filter Plant treats approximately 5.25 billion gallons of water each year.  About 35% of that water is used by the District’s customers.
