Information About Your Water

We receive up to 600 acre feet (195,510,600 gallons) of water from the Fountain Valley Authority’s (FVA) Water Treatment Plant annually. This water is delivered to us from the mountains through a series of tunnels and aqueducts leading through the Arkansas River Basin and is eventually stored in Pueblo Reservoir. It is then pumped to the FVA treatment plant located just south of The City of Fountain near the Ray Nixon Power Plant.

The Water District also has ground water rights that can be used to supplement the FVA surface water during high demand periods. The Water District owns and operates 3 storage tanks including the water tower located in Stratmoor Hills which was erected in 1957. Our water quality meets all Colorado and EPA Drinking Water Regulations. We take bacteriological samples at more than 7 sites throughout the District each month and we do chlorine analysis daily to ensure the proper disinfection of the drinking water.
