The District is pleased to announce the recent hiring of David Williams (pictured above on the right). David was hired in February as a water distribution and wastewater collection system operator. Prior to working for the District, he worked for the City and County of Denver and Denver Water, where he performed much of the same work he is doing at the District.
The District encourages the use of xeriscape or Waterwise gardens to promote water conservation. Xeriscaping is landscaping that limits the need for watering in arid climates. Landscapes can require 50% of the water used for home consumption. Savings from 30% to 80% can be attained with the use of xeriscaping.
Summer is almost here, and outdoor activities are a must! Living in Colorful Colorado has its perks when it comes to outdoor activities such as hiking, rafting, and cycling just to name a few. It is important to stay hydrated while doing any physical activity especially in the heat and especially in high altitude.

For more than 40 years, American Water Works Association (AWWA) and its members have celebrated Drinking Water Week, a unique opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role water plays in daily lives.
According to experts from Denver Water, snowpack is in good shape as we head into the runoff season. Statewide snowpack is at 107% of average as of April 21st. Denver Water relies on mountain snow for 80% of its water supply. Their experts are optimistic that their essential reservoirs will fill during this spring run off season.
As the ground begins to warm and the snowfall fades, April becomes a busy month that typically leads to many outdoor projects. National Safe Digging Month is a great reminder for excavators and homeowners to contact 811 before beginning any digging project.
The sewer service (lateral) is owned and maintained by homeowners, including the connection to the district’s main. All maintenance and repairs within the lateral are the homeowner’s responsibility, even the portion of the pipe within the street.
