Willows Water District was organized by decree of the Arapahoe County District Court on January 8, 1974. Willows' service area includes a three and a half square mile area within Arapahoe County, which is primarily residential, with several moderate sized commercial centers to serve the needs of local consumers.
The Board of Directors of the Willows Water District established the goal of providing its customers with high quality potable water from renewable sources. After years of dedicated effort, this goal was achieved through contracts with Denver Water.
Willows is a Title 32 special district, organized to provide water service within a 3.6 square mile area of Arapahoe County. It operates as a quasi-governmental municipal corporation, and is an enterprise under Colorado law.
