Visit this incredible new laboratory where Denver Water performs more than 70,000 tests annually to monitor water quality in its watershed as well as its treatment and distribution systems.

CSU Spur provides more opportunities for Denver Water to collaborate with researchers on areas of innovation, policy, and education related to water challenges in urban, rural, and watershed environments. The new laboratory has the capacity to conduct more than 200,000 tests each year to keep up with increasing regulatory requirements and allows for more state-of-the-art equipment and more efficient workspace for technicians.
