Water Management

The Water Management Division is responsible for the proper operation of the water treatment plant and distribution system and compliance and reporting with Safe Drinking Water Standards, the State and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).  The Town’s raw water system is supplied by the Colorado Big Thompson Project and Big Thompson River water rights are used.  The primary raw water storage is the Berthoud Reservoir north of the Town.

Department responsibilities

The Annual Water Quality reports are designed to inform you about the quality of your drinking water and the services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. While the Town  treats and analyzes the water that is supplied to the District, System Operators perform monthly water tests to ensure proper chlorine levels and performs testing for lead annually. We hope our annual reports, which summarizes water quality testing results from the previous calendar year and the Archived Water Quality Reports answer any questions you may have about your drinking water.
