The Snake River Water District has partnered with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to address the detection of PFAS in some of the District's water system. Under the guidance and recommendations of CDPHE, SRWD has voluntarily hired an engineering firm to oversee the collection and testing of additional samples from all of its wells.
Beginning January 1, 2024, the water rates will increase by 12% across the board. This was approved by the board of directors as part of the funding for the Snake River Water District's ten-year master plan of capital improvements. Tap fees will increase to $12,000 per EQR.
