Take a journey through the water system and meet some of the 1,100 experts working day and night to keep the water flowing.
By Travis Thompson
The best part of my job is going behind the scenes with experts across hundreds of different specialties to help tell the story of Denver Water.
I’ve gone underground with crews upgrading the water distribution system, battled a blaze with first responders during a multi-alarm fire and even hit the slopes with scientists planning for climate change.
While each piece is unique, the one constant is the dedicated and experienced employees behind each story.
With more than 1,100 professionals working around the clock, there’s a good chance you’re more connected to these experts than you think. A parent at your child’s school, someone in your book club or even a relative may be part of the Denver Water family.
As 2016 comes to an end, we’re taking a look back at these water pros in action, working hard to ensure you’ve had a clean and reliable drinking supply this year — and for many more to come.
Who knows, you may even recognize a face or two.
