Find out what it takes to acquire, treat and deliver an average of 70 million gallons per day of high-quality drinking water to our customers. We can customize this water presentation to cover topics such as water system engineering, watershed management, water quality or water law.

​Future water demand -Utilities goals, planning and projects 

Integrated Water Resource Plan



Continuous long-term water planning is the reason Colorado Springs has an excellent and reliable water system today that supports our economy and quality of life. Will our community have enough water in the future? Utilities experts explain our Integrated Water Resource Plan (IWRP) that serves as our community’s roadmap for ensuring a reliable, cost-effective water supply for the next 50 years. Find out about the 10-year savings goals, exciting water supply projects and programs Utilities is working on, and planning and conservation initiatives such as the updated Water-Wise Rules ordinances that will help position our community for a sustainable and successful future.

Electric Integrated Resource Plan

We address our community’s electric needs through the Electric Integrated Resource Plan (EIRP), which is designed to meet our future-energy demand. The result is a plan that focuses on safe, reliable power that is respectful of the environment, while minimizing costs to ratepayers. The EIRP process is underway and project team members are available for presentations and to obtain feedback from community groups.
