The Soldier Canyon Water Treatment Authority (SCWTA) owns and operates the Soldier Canyon Filter Plant, which is a 60 million gallon per day (MGD) conventional water treatment plant located in Fort Collins, CO. Since 1961, the Authority* has provided high quality, reliable, safe, and affordable drinking water to over 100,000 people living in three water districts in the Northern Colorado region. The three water districts (Tri-Districts) are:
- East Larimer County (ELCO) Water District,
- Fort Collins-Loveland Water District, and
- North Weld County Water District.
Through the SCWTA Board, the Tri-Districts are the sole owners of the Soldier Canyon Filter Plant and comprise the members of the SCWTA Board. A map of the 3 water districts can be found here.
The Authority delivers the highest quality treated water to its customers with financial responsibility, while following policies established by the Board in a professional, efficient, and ethical manner.
*Prior to 2017 the Authority was organized as the Soldier Canyon Filter Plant Committee.
