Water Resources

In 2018, two-thirds of the City’s raw water came from local wells and springs and one-third was piped in from Woodland Park’s transbasin water rights.

Limited future improvements are planned for the City’s North Well Field near the golf course, increasing reliability for existing customers and providing water for moderate City growth toward a service population of 12,600.
