The City has a projected shortfall of 2,550 acre feet to meet the needs of the citizens in 2065. To fill the gap the City is pursuing several sources of water supplies: a) participating in the Denver Water Gross Reservoir expansion project, b) purchase of agricultural water rights which are then converted to municipal use, and c) the construction of a future water storage reservoir. Progress is measured over years.
Water is a critical element necessary to allow development to occur within the City.
The Water Supply and Demand Study completed in 2015.
