Denver Water monitors the weather, including snow and rainfall in the mountains and on city streets.
To give us a better picture of how much precipitation falls in our service area, Denver Water gathers information from multiple weather stations and averages it together to inform our planning.
Those locations include one at the old Stapleton Airport near I-70 and Quebec Street, one at our Administration Building near I-25 and Eighth Avenue and one near Waterton Canyon in southwest Littleton.
These stations are geographically dispersed within our service area. The average of the information gathered by the stations do a reasonable job of representing weather in our service area.
