Basalt's Water System

Water Supply

The main water supply for the water system comes from springs on Basalt Mountain. Collection boxes gather the water and it is piped into town. Then it is filtered with state of the art technology, treated with small amounts of chlorine, and sent to your faucet.


Basalt has three wells that supplement Basalt Springs during periods of high demand. The well water is somewhat harder, meaning it has more minerals than the spring water. The more we conserve water, the less we need to use the wells; and that means more spring water in the system.
