Water Treatment Facility

Northglenn’s source water originates from the top of Berthoud Pass, joining with Clear Creek’s water flow, eventually reaching Standley Lake for storage. Portions of this raw water are then distributed to the Water Treatment Facility for treatment.


The Water Treatment Facility operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year by Colorado Department of Public Health certified operators. The facility is  rated for 14 Million Gallons per Day (MGD) and serves around 39,000 residents. Approximately 2.5 MGD is treated in the winter and up to 9 MGD in the summer. Drinking water is carefully monitored, from the source to the finished product, so when you turn on your faucet at home, you can trust your tap.

Conservation through Residuals Management
In 2024, an additional process was added at the Water Treatment Facility, focusing on water conservation through residuals management. These improvements allow for a minimum of 80% of previously discarded water, to be recycled back to the head of the plant for treatment. Prior to this implementation, approximately 40 to 60 million gallons of water used in the treatment process was transferred back to waters of the state via Wastewater Treatment Facility operations.
