How does the Town supply our community with water?

The Town of Erie is committed to providing our more than 34,000 water customers with safe, reliable, high-quality water services essential to everyday life. The Town’s primary water source is the Colorado-Big Thompson Project, which originates on the western slope. Other sources include water stored in Windy Gap and Gross Reservoirs. In emergencies, we have access to Lafayette Water and Lefthand Water. The Town is also actively exploring access to groundwater sources and is always involved in other regional partnerships to address water access into the future.
