Where Our Water Comes From
Locally, we live in an area with steep hillsides and rough terrain, with wide swaths of open land. Because of this, our water and sewer must travel long distances even within our service area to accommodate our customers, which adds to the costs of maintenance and operation.
With more than half of drinking water supplies originating from snowpack and rain hundreds of miles away, water is stored in reservoirs or groundwater basins and pumped through miles of pipelines before reaching your faucet. It takes energy, a host of physical infrastructure and human expertise to make this journey successful.
