  1. 12/14/2021 2022 Billing Rates and Capital Project

    The following water main replacement project is scheduled for construction in 2022:

    On Longhorn St. between S. Sheridan Blvd. and Sunset Dr. - This project will replace 941 feet of 10" cast iron pipe with 8" PVC at a projected cost of $342,481.

    There have been no water main failures on this segment of main. However, based on previous events in this vicinity a potential failure exposes several properties to significant property damage. This project is proposed to be placed in the existing asphalt as to reduce disruption of customer’s private property and landscape.

    Based on criteria for determining the need for water main replacements in the Bow Mar Water and Sanitation District, and pursuant to an extensive review of all remaining unprotected cast iron pipe water mains not yet replaced, six water main replacement projects are proposed through 2037. 

    The total capital improvement costs for the proposed water main replacement projects equals $3,547,374.  For financial planning purposes, the replacements are scheduled to begin in 2022 and then occur every third year thereafter.

    Water Billing 

    Bow Mar has a Master Meter Water Supply Contract with Denver Water. The contract calls for Bow Mar to read customer’s water meters and bill each customer directly for the amount of water consumed. As such, Bow Mar establishes the water rates assessed to Bow Mar customers.

    As of February 1, 2022, Bow Mar's water rates will be as follows: 

    • Bi-monthly base rate for water: $43.20
    • Water consumption rate:     $4.44 per 1,000 gallons

    Sewer Billing

    Bow Mar contracts with the Metro Water Recovery and South Platte Renew for sewage treatment services. As such, Bow Mar bills each customer a sewage transmission/processing fee.

    As of February 1, 2022, this bi-monthly fee will be $38.07.

    Bow Mar customers receive a combined water and sewer bill on a bi-monthly basis.
