Water Quality

As a community water system, FLMD will be under the regulation of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment which establishes a routine water monitoring schedule. FLMD expects to have no problems meeting the applicable water quality standards.

Water Portfolio

Forest Lakes Metropolitan District (FLMD) will ultimately utilize a mixture of surface water and groundwater to provide an adequate water supply to its residents.

The District has significant decreed Denver Basin ground water resources and owns a surface water supply by virtue of a transaction with Colorado Springs Utilities whereby it provides annually up to 660 AF of transmountain return flows to FLMD. Until the surface water treatment plant is constructed and put into service, water will be supplied by an Arapahoe aquifer well decreed for 400 AF.

The combined groundwater and surface water resources owned by the District are more than sufficient for all current and planned residential use and for future commercial uses. The District also has an Interconnection Agreement with Triview Metropolitan District whereby both districts agree to provide emergency water to one another when necessary. The physical interconnection with Triview will be in service by mid-summer of 2016.
