Breckenridge Water

The Town of Breckenridge's water division facilitates everything from water treatment, to water delivery, to water bills. Currently the town's water supply runs through Gary Roberts Water Treatment Plant, located near the Goose Pasture Tarn reservoir 2 miles south of town. The current plant is rated at 4 million gallons per day. With the current growth rate of the area, a feasibility study for a second water treatment plant was conducted in 2011. The study came to the recommendation that an additional 3 MGD plant be built to meet future population demands, provide redundancy to the existing treatment plant, provide alternative water supplies in case of wildfire in the watershed, and provide additional service to the existing homes and lots near the existing water system boundary.
