Denver Recycled Water Plant
5650 York Street
Commerce City, CO 80228

Water is a precious resource here in the West, much too precious to use just once. That’s why Denver Water has a program to treat and recycle wastewater.

Recycled water has successfully been used across the country for more than 100 years to supply water for irrigation, commercial and industrial uses. There are more than a dozen water recycling programs in Colorado, and Denver Water operates the largest recycled water system in the state.

Denver Water's Recycling Plant treats and delivers billions of gallons of water every year for industrial and outdoor irrigation uses. Once build-out is complete, the recycled water system will free up enough drinking water to serve almost 43,000 households.

Come tour the Denver Recylced Water Plant to learn about the expanding recycled water system. Recycled water — treated to just below potable standards — has helped meet the city’s needs for irrigating parks, golf courses and school grounds, replenishing lakes and serving industrial users.
