District Water and Energy Report
Mountain Regional Water District (the District) is proud to present to the public and our valuable customer base our latest Water and Energy Report. This is an annual effort to present the work we have done the past year in fulfilling our vital water and energy mission and stewardship.
The District has done a masterful job of delivering vital water resources to its customers in the Western Region of Summit County since its beginning in the year 2000. At that period the Snyderville Basin area was suffering from numerous water quality and quantity issues. Through an arduous regionalization effort of combining many small systems, applying our strategic economies of scale and operational excellence, reliable water service has been achieved with sustainability at the core of its mission.
Even though the District functions in a high desert water starved area—one which was fairly late in the development game, by utilizing the intellect and innovation of District staff and consultants, the region has become a leader in water development, water quality, and efficiencies of delivery.
This brief annual Water and Energy Report is designed to paint a clear and relevant picture of the District water system’s physical, managerial, and operational capacity, which leads to its ability to deliver and service the challenging water needs of Western Summit County. Words are primarily replaced in this document with more charts and tables which we believe deliver a better understanding of the history, current function, and trends guiding us into an exciting future.
