Recreation, tourism and retirement/second home are important economic components of South Fork. One critical concern for serving the community and supporting population growth is assuring available water quantity and quality. Existing private water systems are deteriorating and becoming unreliable. Further, Colorado water legislation is requiring the purchase of expensive augmentation plans prior to granting new well permits. These factors are threats to the practical supply of water to a growing population.
It is the mission of the Town of South Fork Water Enterprise to assure cost-effective, sufficient, consistent and quality water supply to the town and its progress.
