The treated water then flows into the delivery and distribution system of potable water throughout the City and a substantial part of the developed rural area outside the City. This service area extends east to the Department of Corrections and the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site. There are over on hundred miles of pipe within the distribution system.
The operations of the City’s water treatment and water distribution systems are subject to the rules and regulations of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
