Penrose Water District

Quality Water on Tap!

The Penrose Water District, nestled in the heart of Colorado, has been a beacon of dedication and service to the town of Penrose for over half a century. Established in 1967, this Colorado Special District has tirelessly supplied municipal water to the town's residents, faithfully serving its community.

The foundational aim behind the inception of the Penrose Water District was crystal clear: "to furnish a safe and unwavering source of drinking water." Today, decades later, this purpose remains the compass that directs every facet of our operations.

Located in the scenic Fremont County, the Penrose Water District occupies a strategic position at the junction of US Highway 50 and State Highway 115. Our office stands as a testament to our commitment to the community, situated right in the heart of downtown Penrose at 210 Broadway.

District Leadership

Guidance and governance for the District come from a dedicated 5-member board. These individuals, elected by our very own constituents, lay down operational and procedural guidelines, which are then diligently implemented by our proficient management and staff. Elections to bring in fresh perspectives are held every even calendar year, with board members serving 4-year terms.

The linchpin of our daily operations is the District Manager, who maintains a direct line of communication with the Board of Directors, ensuring smooth and effective administration.

Our Water Quality

For those curious about our water quality, our Annual Water Quality Report, mandated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, is readily accessible on this website. Our expansive service area is laced with state-of-the-art infrastructure. So, if you spot our diligent staff working across various spots, know that they're ensuring that every drop delivered to you is pristine.

Rates and Fees

On the financial front, all rates and associated fees undergo a rigorous approval process by our elected board of directors. While we strive to maintain stability, if there are any rate adjustments, they usually roll out at the dawn of a new year, typically becoming effective from January 1st. This annual revision ensures that we continue to provide top-notch services without compromising on financial prudence.
