Centennial Water--The History of Then.....and NOW

Date and Time: 
Monday, March 15, 2021 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Speaker: 
Thomas Riggle, Centennial Water

Centennial Water--the History of Then and NOW is a fascinating journey detailing  long range planning vision, construction, infrastructure, people and the precious resource so vital for everyday life, WATER!

Centennial Water & Sanitation District is the water and wastewater provider in Highlands Ranch. Centennial Water provides high quality water through the state-of-the-art Joseph B. Blake Water Treatment Plant located in Highlands Ranch. Wastewater is also treated at the Marcy Gulch Wastewater Treatment Plant to meet stringent water quality standards before it is discharged.

Centennial Water strives to ensure that our water resources are used wisely. Centennial Water’s strategy is to optimize the use of surface water. Over the past 25 years 90 percent of the water supplied has come from renewable river supplies.

Highlands Ranch residents are fortunate to have two water supply sources — the South Platte River to the west, and a massive aquifer underlying our region. Centennial can combine supplies from both sources to optimize the reliability, quality and cost-effectiveness of water. This joint use of renewable water with our vast underground aquifer allows Centennial Water to operate a true conjunctive use system. As a result, aquifers have been annually recharged for more than 10 years.

Journey with Thomas Riggle, from Centennial Water, as he explores the beginnings of Centennial Water (originally called Mission Viejo Water) from the earliest inception when Highlands Ranch was being built, to the state-of-the-art facilities that exist today.   Thomas will explain where our water comes from, where it goes, and how to conserve this most precious of resources.
