Denver Water replaces water mains, some dating back to 1890. In addition, they repair with the hope to avoid breaks, replace corroded pipe, alleviate water quality problems, increase available hydrant flow, and improve area delivery. Discover how and why Colorado’s oldest and largest water utility selects and replaces an average of 60,000 ft of pipe per year in an effort to maximize levels of service and minimize life cycle costs.
