The City of Dacono requires all developers or subdividers to purchase and dedicate sufficient raw water rights to support the proposed development. For residential, commercial, and industrial development, raw water dedication is based on tap size.
All water shares dedicated to the city are in turn dedicated by the city to the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District. The Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District, then, makes available to the Central Weld County Water District, an allotment of raw water for treatment and transmission to the city for its use as measured through the master meter.
The city only accepts Colorado Big Thompson Water. Water dedication must be made prior to building permit issuance.
