Water Resources

Broomfield’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 Colorado-Big Thompson 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.

In addition to its potable water supply, Broomfield also has a robust reuse (non-potable) water system. The reuse water system allows Broomfield to use treated wastewater effluent a second time for irrigation and other non-potable purposes. To learn more, visit our Water Efficiency page.

Broomfield’s Water Reuse System

The keystone of Broomfield’s water efficiency efforts is the nonpotable distribution system, also known as the reuse system.  Broomfield’s reuse system provides water to approximately 940 acres of irrigated parks in the city.  There are approximately 1,500 additional acres of non-city owned areas served by the reuse system, including Arista, Flatirons Mall, Legacy High School, Anthem, and Interlocken Business Park along Highway 36. 

The reuse system is extremely beneficial because it allows Broomfield to expand its water supplies beyond a single, one-time use and reduces the amount of treated domestic drinking water that would otherwise be needed for these irrigation purposes.  Broomfield’s reuse system addresses as much as 20% of the overall water demand in the city.
