Water Trailer

Notice to the Community

Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19 restrictions, along with budget and staffing constraints, Denver Water made the difficult decision to suspend water trailer availability for community events for the 2021 season.

Thank you for your understanding and for everything you are doing to help keep our communities safe. We look forward to being back out in the community with the water trailer in 2022.

Denver Water TrailerThe Denver Water Trailer supplies high-quality, ice-cold water to large, outdoor, public events. There is no fee for this community service, but event producers may need to provide volunteer servers.
