Grandview Estates Rural Water Conservation District (GERWCD) is a Colorado State recognized agency that exists to protect the water interests of Grandview Estates residents. Grandview Estates is one of Douglas County’s first neighborhoods and is located on the Northside of Lincoln Ave. adjacent to S. Chambers Rd bordering the Western edge of Parker, Colorado. GERWCD is currently seeking neighborhood volunteers to fill out our remaining board positions.
GERWCD was formed after a ballot vote in November of 2007 to serve as a local government agency to facilitate water resource management, development, and conservation in Grandview Estates and later throughout Douglas County through active participation in the Rural Water Authority of Douglas County (RWADC). Programs include researching and monitoring water supply, protecting individual exempt well supply, and quality from outside influences. RWADC participation provides links between local, county, state, and federal resource partners. Each property owner pays a small 1.5 mill levy tax annually to the District based on their assessed property value.
Historically, these funds have been utilized to fund the USGS well level and quality monitoring programs, water quality testing, adjudication of water rights, defense of water rights, annual financial reviews, and keeping residents aware of a variety of potential water issues surrounding Grandview Estates due to the recent development within Douglas County (including Chambers Reservoir).
