Lake Durango Water Authority

The Lake Durango Water Authority (LDWA) is the end product of the cooperation between the customers of the Lake Durango Water Company (LDWC) and the La Plata County Commissioners. In June of 2007 these groups met with the owner of LDWC and agreed to transfer the assets and operation of the water system to a governmental entity with the desire better serve the residents of the service area. The authority was formed in January of 2008 and has to date secured the funding and needed research to complete the transfer sometime in 2009.

Mission Statement

"Our goal is to provide reliable quality water to the 1435 current tap holders and to develop additional water resources to expand the service area."
