Water, Wastewater & Stormwater

Water
The Town operates a water enterprise fund meaning the Town provides water services and bills accordingly. The Town purchases water from Central Weld Water District and distributes it to the citizens through a gravity system utilizing the water tank located on the south side of town in Water Tower Park. Kersey's water distribution system is able to serve hundreds of customers however as growth continues to occur, water service lines are constantly being evaluated for capacity. Additionally, many of the water service lines are aging and in need of repair/replacement. The Town is committed to providing the best possible water delivery system and is working to identify future needs. Maintenance to the Town's water tower, hydrants, delivery lines, and staffing all account for some of the Town uses for water related revenues in addition to purchasing water through Central Weld.
