Investing in resilient water systems

As the underground network of water and wastewater pipes in Colorado Springs approaches 100 years old, much of it is nearing the end of its useful life. 
Like other utilities across the United States, we are challenged with sustainable funding solutions for the renewal of these systems. 

This fall, we're asking the Utilities Board for a slight increase in water and wastewater rates for 2019. As a not-for-profit utility, rates cover only the cost of serving our customers.  To learn more about your water systems and proposed 2019 utility rates, please visit
Get on tap: Hydrate Responsibly 

We're fortunate to have one of the finest sources of drinking water in the nation--the Rocky Mountains. Most of our water comes directly from high country snowmelt, which means we use it first. The water is reused by more than 200 cities before it's released into the Gulf of Mexico.

At about a penny per gallon, you can save big money by drinking tap water instead of purchasing water that is bottled elsewhere. Plus, you'll be helping the environment by reusing bottles, cups or glasses.

Visit and pledge to ditch bottled water for Colorado Springs' high-quality tap.
