Where does the Inverness community’s water come from?

The Inverness community’s water supply is about 50 percent from deep groundwater wells and 50 percent from Denver Water. The deep wells, however, are a non-renewing source of water and thus don’t benefit from snow and rainfall that replenish our streams and rivers. Once the deep well water is used, it is gone. So, as the demand for water in the South Metro Area continues to increase, the water in the deep wells is being depleted more rapidly. That’s why the District’s Board signed up for the WISE Project to supplement its water supply with renewable water to replace the groundwater supply. The WISE water will be available as early as 2016.
