Water Supply and Reuse
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. Learn more about Broomfield's water supply and reuse program.
The City and County of Broomfield’s water supply comes from the upper Colorado River just west of Rocky Mountain National Park and water sources along the Front Range. This means drought in the Colorado River Basin and local drought in the Front Range can affect how much water is available to Broomfield. Learn more about the current drought status in Broomfield.
