The Value of Water


Many customers don’t understand all that goes into bringing Greeley’s clean, high-quality, award-winning water to your homes and businesses, 24/7.  Greeley’s water starts as pure Rocky Mountain snowmelt and the Water Department uses the latest technologies and most effective practices to further improve the quality of our drinking water.

Compared to other expenses—mobile phones, Internet, cable television, food, other beverages—water is a pretty good deal. Greeley customers only pay around a half of a penny per gallon for clean water delivered to their tap. However, aging infrastructure, rising energy costs, climate change and the need for new water projects to meet a growing population all will contribute to the cost of water increasing.


In 2017, single-family residential customers, who stay within their water budgets, will pay about $2.80 less per month.  Get details about 2017 water rates.  

People don’t realize what goes into their water service. For each dollar Greeley Water spends:

1¢­ - Regulatory Compliance

2¢ - Natural Resource Management

2¢ - Customer Service

5¢ - Administration 

42¢ - Water Services

48¢ - Infrastructure Investment

The percentage of "water services" is higher in Greeley when compared to other Colorado cities. This is because that Greeley has two water treatment plants that are far from the service area, in an effort to provide the highest quality water to you.
