Welcome to the Cobb Lake Regional Water Treatment Authority. We look forward to serving you.

Safe, clean & affordable water for Northern Colorado

Forward-thinking collaboration to meet the long-term water treatment needs of our rapidly growing region.

Cobb Lake Regional Water Treatment Authority

Sustainable water solutions for the future

The Cobb Lake Regional Water Treatment Authority (CLRWTA) is a forward-thinking, regional collaboration established to meet the long-term municipal water treatment needs for the Fort Collins-Loveland Water District and the Towns of Eaton, Severance and Windsor. Due to the anticipated growth of Northern Colorado, which is expected to double in population by 2050, regional coordination is critical to securing and managing our region’s current and future water needs.

To treat and deliver clean, safe and affordable water to the four service areas, CLRWTA will be constructing a state-of-the-art water treatment facility and an approximate 20-mile underground delivery pipeline. The facility is anticipated to be operational by 2030. The water treatment facility will be located approximately 10 miles north of Windsor in Weld County.

CLWRTA allows participating entities to share resources and infrastructure to meet year-round demands and increase water treatment resilience.
