Denver Water’s gratitude list

Of all the reasons to be thankful for this holiday season, our customers are No. 1.

Every holiday season it’s important to take a moment to pause, reflect and be thankful for what we have.

So, we made a list, checked it — well, we checked it more than twice — and narrowed it down to the top three things Denver Water is thankful for during the season.


3. A sustainable future.

There are many ways to be sustainable, from a simple thing like cooking Thanksgiving dinner to completely rethinking how we do business.

In terms of smaller things, we’re grateful to have so many tips to enjoy the holiday while saving water. Among them: Thaw your frozen turkey in the refrigerator — not under running water.

If you’re part of our groundbreaking Lead Reduction Program, remember to use filtered water when cooking this holiday season. Learn more about the program.

On a larger scale, Denver Water has been recognized for its efforts on sustainability — for the second time — by the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, a group representing the largest publicly owned drinking water suppliers in the United States. It's one of many awards Denver Water has received for its work around sustainability, engineering, public health and the environment.

2. Our employees.

There are 1.5 million people depending on Denver Water to keep the water flowing, daily. You can meet some of them in this video below.

Whether it’s the crews who repair and replace water mains, the teams who protect and manage reservoirs, watersheds and water quality, or our emergency services and support services workers, there are many Denver Water employees working around the clock, rain or shine, every single day.

Yes, even during the holidays.

1. You, our customer.

We have so much to thank you for, but most importantly, we are grateful for our customers’ trust in us to deliver safe, high-quality drinking water; for your patience during construction work — including allowing the Lead Reduction Program into your homes to replace old lead service lines; and for your commitment to continue to use water wisely.

Water is, after all, our most precious resource. Cheers.
