Water Resources

Water Opens in new windowBroomfield’s Water Resources Division is responsible for securing, protecting and improving Broomfield’s water resources for current and future customers.

In an effort to conserve existing water resources and maximize Broomfield’s future water supply, the Water Resources Division is committed to developing and maintaining a robust Water Efficiency program.

Water Supply Information

Broomfield has two primary sources of water:  treated water purchased from Denver Water, and raw water supplied to Broomfield’s Water Treatment Plant by the Colorado-Big Thompson (C-BT) Project and Windy Gap  Project under the management of Northern Water.

View a video describing the C-BT Project.

Broomfield is also a participant in the Windy Gap Firming Project (WGFP). Participation in the WGFP will provide valuable water storage and water supply reliability for Broomfield customers.

Drought Watch

Due to dry weather conditions, Broomfield is currently on Drought Watch.

The request at this time is strictly for voluntary compliance.   Voluntary reductions reduce the possibility water use restrictions will be intensified.  

Voluntary actions include: 

  • no outside water use between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.; 
  • reducing lawn watering to 2 days per week for no more than 3 hours; and 
  • using a broom instead of a hose to clean driveways and sidewalks.

Any other water conservation measures that you can implement will be appreciated. Remember that a little effort and a little common sense will make a big difference in conserving this most valuable resource.  See our Lawn Watering Tips page for ideas.
