UPDATE (July 16, 2023): Central Weld County Water District (CWCWD) has recently communicated to the Town of Frederick regarding a change in the blending schedule. The blending process, originally planned for June, is scheduled for July 17, 2023.

May 18, 2023: Beginning in early June, the Central Weld County Water District (CWCWD) and Little Thompson Water District (LTWD) will implement a blending process at the water treatment plant, combining water from Dry Creek Reservoir with the primary source, Carter Lake Reservoir. This change aims to enhance water quality and ensure a reliable supply for water customers.

To optimize water resources, the blending of water from Dry Creek Reservoir with that from Carter Lake Reservoir will be done at a 10% dilution rate. Previously, the dilution rate stood at 20%. This revised process is not limited to seasonal adjustments but is intended for year-round blending, ensuring a consistent and reliable water supply.

Some people might notice a slight difference in taste or smell because of the blending, but don't worry! The water is still safe to drink and meets high-quality standards. As the blending process takes effect, it is essential to note that the changes in taste or odor, if any, will be minimal. Water experts and technicians have worked diligently to ensure a smooth transition and maintain the high quality of our water supply. We encourage residents to provide feedback should they have any concerns or questions, as your input is vital in helping us continuously improve our services.

The Central Weld County Water District filter plant will continue conducting daily water quality tests, just as it does presently. These rigorous tests monitor and maintain the highest water safety standards, ensuring you receive only the best drinking water possible. The health and well-being of our residents remain our top priority. Blending water sources is a carefully planned and executed procedure that adheres to stringent regulatory guidelines. As a result, you can trust that the water delivered to your taps is thoroughly treated, tested, and fully compliant with all safety regulations.

Implementing the revised blending process at the water treatment plant marks an important step forward in our commitment to providing residents with safe and great-tasting drinking water. In addition, by combining water from Dry Creek Reservoir and Carter Lake Reservoir, we are fortifying our water supply and ensuring its reliability throughout the year. Rest assured that the Central Weld County Water District and Little Thompson Water District remain dedicated to delivering the highest quality water while upholding rigorous safety standards. Let's embrace this positive change together as we strive for a healthier and more sustainable future.

Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that all community water systems provide their customers with an annual water quality report or Consumer Confidence Report. This requirement is part of the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations, as amended.

The Town of Frederick does not operate its own treatment plant; however, we do purchase treated water from Carter Lake. Under these arrangements, they are the agency that would compile and report the data that EPA requires.
