Metro Water Recovery

Who We Are

Metro Water Recovery in Denver, CO - a nationally recognized leader among clean water utilities, provides wastewater conveyance and treatment services for 2 million people who live and work within our 715-square mile service area. Metro Water Recovery is the wastewater treatment authority for much of metropolitan Denver and parts of northern Colorado. We are committed to protecting the environment and providing for the community's future needs. We collect about 130 million gallons of wastewater per day from neighborhood sewer lines and remove more than 95 percent of the pollutants before discharging it into the South Platte River. We make wastewater suitable for agriculture, aquatic life, industrial use, water supply and recreation. ​ Our mission is to protect the region’s health and environment by cleaning water and recovering resources.
