Tap Fees: If you are a new or current property owner of the district and would like to look into the possibility of tapping into the district water system, please contact our ORC and Board President. They can send you the appropriate forms along with looking at the location of your property in relation to our closest line to determine if tapping into our system is feasible. Our current tap fee is $8,000.
Please note that no connections are made after October 15th of each year per our ORC due to weather.
Cisterns: Properties connected to the District's water system must receive prior approval of the District before connecting a cistern to the building's plumbing. Prior to the District granting approval of any cistern installation and use, the District must receive a letter from a licensed plumber in the State of Colorado, certifying the installation does not create a cross-connection or backflow situation. Failure to obtain district approval prior to installation of a cistern shall be considered an unauthorized connection subject to application fees, fines, and penalties imposed by the district and may be grounds for the district to turn off service, remove the meter and terminate the tap for the health, safety, and welfare of the district's customers. If a cistern is approved for connection to the building's plumbing, the owner shall submit a backflow prevention device test report to the district manager on or before July 31st of each year thereafter. The backflow test shall be performed by an individual licensed to perform such testing in the state of Colorado.
