Developer Information

New Development is strongly encouraged to contact the District early in your planning process.

Please start by filling out a Water Tap Request Form and include your conceptual plan and the fire flow required by the local Fire Department.  The District does not issue ‘will serve’ letters therefore a complete review of the proposed development is required to produce a Draft Water Service Agreement.

We will require a Utility Report and Plan as the process moves forward and the District will provide basic hydraulic information for modeling efforts.

The District’s Design Criteria is available as a secure document.  If you require an unsecured version, please contact the office at (970) 356-3020 or email Leann Koons.

 

Notice of Policy Change Effective August 13, 2018

At the August 13, 2018 North Weld County Water District Board Meeting, the Board adopted two resolutions regarding Raw Water Dedication and Conservation Blue Taps.

Resolution 20180813-01, in summary, requires owners or developers of real property requiring five (5) acre feet or more of water to transfer acceptable raw water rights to the District in satisfaction of a minimum of fifty percent (50%) of the raw water requirements for such development with the balance of the raw water requirements to be satisfied by the applicable cash-in-lieu payment to the District.

In recognition of the approval status of certain pending developments, the District is willing to continue to accept a 100% cash in lieu payment in connection with those  pending subdivisions to be served by the District which have received conditional or final approval on or before August 13, 2018 from the legislative body responsible for approving subdivision of real property, provided that the plat for such development must be recorded on or before August 13, 2019 and the water taps (including both the water component and plant investment fee including the distance fee) for such subdivision shall be purchased on or before August 13, 2023.

Resolution 20180813-02, in summary, eliminates the conservation blue tap program and requires the payment in full of the plant investment fee and distance fee portion of the water tap upon acquisition of the same.

In recognition of the approval status of certain pending developments, the District is aware  that certain land owners and developers may have planned on the use of conservation blue taps in connection with pending real estate developments and has determined that conservation blue taps should continue to be made available to certain pending subdivisions to be served by the District which have received conditional or final approval on or before August 13, 2018 from the legislative body responsible for approving subdivision of real property, provided that the plat for such development must be recorded on or before August 13, 2019 and the taps (including the payment or transfer of water, as applicable) shall be purchased on or before August 13, 2023.
