Utilities - Water & Sewer


The City of Montrose provides water and sewer utilities to city residents through the Utilities Division of Public Works.

Utility crews maintain miles of water and sewer lines throughout the city to provide reliable service.

The water and sewer utilities are maintained through service charges that are placed in enterprise funds for each utility. These enterprise funds are used exclusively to support the cost of providing the service.

Fees are set according to what is needed to cover the actual cost of the service.

Before Digging

Call the Utility Notification Center of Colorado by dialing 811. The center will provide assistance in locating all underground utilities, including:

  • Electric lines
  • Gas pipes
  • Telephone cables
  • Water and sewer lines

Be prepared to provide the street address, exact location of excavation, and nearest intersection. Notify the UNCC at least three days prior to digging, except in an emergency.

One-Call Notification System Act

The One-Call Notification System Act was passed into law in May 2000. This law requires that owners and operators of underground utilities in Colorado join the statewide one-call notification center (811). 

The City of Montrose joined the statewide one-call center, making it convenient for our customers who plan on digging.
