“To secure and provide the highest quality water to meet the current and future needs of our customers at the lowest reasonable cost.”
Ute Water Conservancy District was established on April 4, 1956, by a decree of the Mesa County Court system. The purpose of the District's inception was to supply domestic water service to the rural areas of the Grand Valley under the "Water Conservancy Act" of Colorado. The service boundaries encompass approximately 260 square miles within Mesa County, starting in Cameo, Colorado and ending near the Colorado-Utah Stateline.
The service area includes the areas in and around the City of Grand Junction, Town of Fruita, Town of Palisade, and the unincorporated Towns of Clifton, Loma, and Mack. The District supplies domestic water through nearly 900 miles of distribution lines to over 80,000 consumers, making it the largest domestic water provider between Denver, Colorado and Salt Lake City, Utah.
"As the community in which we serve continues to grow, so shall the need for the District to find innovative and proactive approaches to conserving current resources while establishing additional resources."
