About Left Hand Water District

Left Hand Water District is a quasi-municipal corporation and a political subdivision of the State of Colorado, governed by Colorado Revised Statutes Title 32 Special Districts. The District has served customers in unincorporated areas of Boulder and Weld Counties since the early 1960’s. Our service area is generally bounded by the City of Longmont on the north, the Cities of Boulder, Lafayette, and Erie on the south, I-25 on the east and the foothills on the west.

History of Left Hand Water District

In 1960 a small group of farmers and other rural land owners in Boulder County formed the Left Hand Domestic Water Users Association and built a domestic water supply and distribution system to serve families who were dependent on wells and cisterns for drinking water.

In the early 1960’s, users created additional separate companies to finance the new water system. In 1968 those companies were consolidated into the Left Hand Water Supply Company. In 1990, the electors of the company voted to become the Left Hand Water District, a quasi-municipal water activity enterprise.
