Welcome to the web site of the East Boulder County Water District (“District”). It is the major source for all information concerning the District and its operation.
The District was formed by election of the residents of Apollo Estates, Benchmark Estates, Panorama Park and Paragon Estates on November 2, 1999. For a short background, please refer to A Brief History. The District has been assigned Public Water System ID #CO0107236. The election established the initial Service Area and which properties received water. This is the latest District Boundary Map.
Additional properties have since included within the District. On August 19, 2008, the Court approved the District's Service Area Expansion to contain five properties off of Majestic Drive. The initial delivery of water to these properties commenced on November 23, 2009.
Major infrastructure improvements have been made since the initial distribution system was established. These include:
As the water levels dropped in its wells in the late 1990s, the Panorama Park (PPMWA) system board instituted a moratorium on the issuance of water taps for un-built lots, and set in place rate structures that discouraged excessive water consumption. The system operators provided detailed pump and usage data so that PPMWA was able to support these. However, the policy came into conflict with the interests of vacant lot owners who wished to develop or sell their properties.
A committee to explore forming a special district that would replace PPMWA with water supplied from outside was created. That group was joined by representatives from the Benchmark Estates and Apollo Estate systems as well as individual property owners in Paragon Estates.
The East Boulder County Water District was formed by election of the residents of Apollo Estates, Benchmark Estates, Panorama Park and Paragon Estates on November 2, 1999. The election established the initial Service Area and which properties received water. The existing Benchmark Estates and Apollo Estates community well and distribution system were integrated into the new East Boulder County Water District's distribution system.
The District has continued to evolve, and major events are identified in Major District Expansion and Improvements.
