ABOUT the DISTRICT
Central Weld County Water District (CWCWD) was organized in 1965 and was initially funded by a $3.8 million dollar general obligation bond for construction of facilities. Beginning in 1967, CWCWD was created to provide reliable and good quality water to rural users and communities who were, at the time, dependent on sub-surface water sources.
The District's domestic water service area now extends south from Greeley to the Tri-town area of Dacono, Firestone, and Frederick in southwest Weld County, and east from Interstate 25 to Kersey and the Hardin area.
Water is one of our most precious natural resources, one that all of us depend on daily. However, we all take the availability of water for granted. As our summer days heat up, the ability to provide water for peak usage periods becomes more of a concern. Water conservation on a voluntary basis is one way all of us can help in insuring that water treatment, delivery, and storage can keep up with demands. How can I help? One way is to restrict outdoor water usage to every other day and in the early morning hours. Your voluntary participation will be greatly appreciated.
Water supply for the District is taken from Carter Lake west of Berthoud where the CWCWD has major treatment and storage facilities owned and
operated jointly with Little Thompson Water District (LTWD). A high pressure transmission main transports water east approximately 22 miles to the
District's distribution system. Raw water supply is received through the Colorado-Big Thompson Project and the purchase of Windy Gap water to
supply residents in areas which could not previously be serviced.
