Water & wastewater resources

 Water & wastewater resources

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 are primarily first-time users of the water.

With so much taking place underground and behind the scenes, wastewater services are rarely given a second thought. More than the disposal of household and business waste, Colorado Springs Utilities’ complex system of pipes, pump stations and treatment facilities work in concert to ensure the health of our community.

We operate one of Colorado’s largest wastewater systems, providing reliable, environmentally-responsible wastewater collection and treatment services to more than 135,000 customers.
