Why Public-Private Partnerships?

Nearly 85% of the state’s water flows west of the Continental Divide, while more than 85% of the population lives on the opposing eastern side. This finite water supply contrasts the growing population, creating a fiercely competitive market. With enormous upfront costs of water acquisition and the demand for ever-increasing distribution distances, Public-Private partnerships are highly beneficial in helping communities solve these complex supply and infrastructure hurdles.     

Providing Land and Water Opportunities

Westward expansion of the Denver metropolitan area is constrained by the Colorado Rockies. Urban development is now concentrated along the eastern I-70 corridor, bringing even more activity to our water and land assets.


Providing Water to Unincorporated Parts of Arapahoe County

We collect, treat and store water for consumption, and deliver it to Rangeview, who then distributes the water to municipalities and end-use customers located in unincorporated parts of Arapahoe County.

Pure Cycle collects fees from Rangeview for designing, permitting, constructing, operating and maintaining the water and wastewater systems.


Procuring and Delivering Water via Shared Infrastructure

Through the Water Infrastructure and Supply Efficiency (WISE) collaboration, we partner with 10 additional Denver-area water suppliers to procure and deliver water using shared infrastructure. Under this agreement, we fund facilities, water delivery, and operations in exchange for a water subscription of 900 acre-feet per year and 3 million gallons per day of transmission pipeline capacity.

WISE is a cost-effective way to increase current capacity while also serving as a model for how regional partnerships will assemble to meet future water supply needs.
