Utilities - Water and Sewer
The citizens of Steamboat Springs rely on the City Utilities Division to provide safe and reliable water and sewer services. Although our Finance Department actually bills you for water and sewer service, the Utilities Division of Public Works provides the service and maintenance. There are two systems that the Division maintains:

Water Distribution - The distribution personnel are responsible for the water mains, fire hydrants, and valves that provide fire protection and potable water to your home or business.

Sewer Collection- The collection system includes hundreds of manholes and of sanitary sewer lines, which carry the City's waste out to the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The Utilities Division is Responsible For:

Inspections - The Utilities Division performs all inspections of water and sewer lines and meter assemblies. Inspections must be scheduled through the Utilities Engineer at (970) 871-8211. All inspections require a 24-hour notice. Meter inspections should be scheduled through the Meter Technician at (970) 871-2750.

Plant Investment Fees (PIFs) - Also known as Tap Fees, PIFs must be paid prior to building permit approval. In order to have your PIF calculated, call (970) 871-8211 for an appointment, or see our Plant Investment Fee Calculation Form.
