Why do you charge a fee for on line payments?

Where does Lakehurst get its water?

Denver Water supplies our District with water from their Marston Water Treatment Plant and the Foothills Water Treatment plant. For more water information go to our links or water quality sections.
Where are my water and sewer lines?
Your water service line generally runs from the meter pit in your front or side yard to where it hooks into your basement or crawl space. The line is usually four to five feet deep. Sewer service lines generally run ten feet either side of the water service line and in most cases are deeper than the water line. The sewer line is usually on the down hill side of the water line. The water and sewer service is generally owned, operated and maintained by the property owner from the mainline to the house, business or structure.
What if I have a sewer back up?
Please call the District office at 303-985-7895 during or after business hours. We will send someone out to check our main sewer line in the street. If this is clear, it is probably your service line that is blocked. We inspect our main lines every two to three years, and make repairs where necessary to help insure that our customer won’t have any back ups due to main line problems.
What if I have a water leak?
If you cannot determine the source of the leak, please call the District office at 303-985-7895. We will send someone out to help you. The majority of leaks are found either in the toilet tank or sprinkler systems.
Do I have to pay for all the water if I have a leak?
Yes. The District is responsible for supplying water to your meter. After the meter, the homeowner is responsible for all water use devices and water loss. Lakehurst is billed by Denver Water through master meters and must pay for all water that passes through these meters. We can make payment arrangements if necessary.

What if the tenant doesn’t pay the water and sewer bill?
If a renter does not pay an outstanding water bill, the owner of the property is responsible. Water and sewer is billed to a property, not a person. Water and sewer charges are a perpetual lien against a property in the state of Colorado.
