The Water Division constructs, operates, and maintains the water distribution lines and meters within the city, providing water customers with a safe and reliable domestic water supply that complies with all state and federal laws.

We work to provide quality service and meet the increasing water demands of the city, while keeping costs as low as possible.

Water Conservation Plan
The City has submitted a draft Water Conservation Plan to the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) for review and comment, as mandated by the State of Colorado. As part of the review process, the City is accepting public comment on the draft plan during a 60-day period that runs concurrent with the Colorado Water Conservation Board's review. The public comment period extends through November 12.

The plan was presented to the Montrose City Council at their work session on September 14. Colorado HB 04-1365 mandates that all covered entities, defined as water retailers who distribute 2,000 acre-feet or more annually, have such plans approved by CWCB.
