Key Policies Include
Outside watering:
Outside watering is prohibited in Kings Valley by water court ruling. The decree issued in 1983 by Colorado District Court, Water Division, granting MWSD water rights, states, "The District shall enact and enforce rules and regulations prohibiting outside irrigation, street cleaning and car washing. Said rules and regulations may not be modified without prior approval of this Court." Garden hoses connected to hose spigots are not permitted.

Service line maintenance:
The property owner is responsible for maintaining water and sewer lines, and appurtenances, in good repair. This includes the valve boxes and inside water meter and remote meter.


Water meters:

The District recommends that you read your inside and outside meters on a regular basis to make sure the two numbers match. The reading on the inside meter indicates actual water used, and if a discrepancy is found between the two, the homeowner will be responsible for paying any additional usage fees based on the inside meter reading.

The district has the right to enter the property or structure served by the district for meter inspection, emergency service or other good cause related to District operations. Good cause, includes, for example, routine monthly outside meter reading, inspection of curb stop valves, and routine inspection of meter accuracy inside homes.
