Summit County Water Augmentation Program

Eligible property owners on a well can apply through Summit County's Water Augmentation program to obtain additional water for outdoor irrigation, hot tubs, and accessory apartments, among other uses. Certain criteria must be met to enter into a water supply contract with the County.

Summit County Water Supply Contract

The policies and pricing structure to contract for water from Summit County Government has recently changed. One of the main changes is that we now include hot tub augmentation as an allowable use. Please review the links below for the revised policies and pricing. Please note that the process takes about 45 days to secure the water augmentation. For additional information, call Eva Henson at 970-453-3402.

As of January 2013, Summit County is able to contract water augmentation with Bill's Ranch well owners. See the Bill's Ranch Rate Schedule and Contract Template.
