Potable water in the City of Littleton is provided and managed by Denver Water. The Littleton Public Works Department does not provide these services but collaborates with Denver Water on Littleton projects as needed.
Problems with your water or observation of a water line break should be reported to Denver Water right away:
Did you know?? Water for the Denver area mostly comes from the Colorado River and the western side of the Continental Divide. The water supply system is complicated but can be seen in Denver Water's Water Collection system map(PDF, 1MB), (Littleton highlighted with a red star).

While Littleton has a great reliable source of potable drinking water, it is always important to conserve. Water “from the tap” is one part of the overall water cycle.

It is important to understand that Colorado and the Denver Metro Area has a semi-arid climate. Consider ways you can be water wise and maybe save some money too!
