- The trailer for the four-chapter “Journey of Water” video series showed some of the many people involved in delivering water to the homes and businesses of Denver Water customers.
- This story started with, “What’s six football fields long, spans a mountain valley and can make water flow uphill?” It’s about siphon in Grand County that got a well-deserved upgrade.
- News about the Garden-In-a-Box kit was very popular, so much so that the discount for Denver Water customers isn’t available anymore. But it’s exciting that so many people are interested in the topic.
- This was about the first chapter of the “Journey of Water” video series. All about where our water starts, high in Colorado’s snow-capped mountains.
