The water line that serves each property in Pueblo’s water system is the responsibility of the property owner, all the way from the water main to the building being served, except the water meter set, which is owned by Pueblo Water. Maintenance of the water service line (including any needed repair or replacement) must be paid for by the property owner unless covered by Pueblo Water’s Service Line Repair Program (Program).
The Program, created by a policy adopted by Pueblo Water’s Board in May 2015, provides for repair or replacement of water service lines between the main and the meter set that meet the requirements of the Program. Repairs under the Program will be performed by Pueblo Water (or its contractor) at no cost to the property owner. This portion of most water service lines is often located in a public right-of-way such as a street or alley, so repairs can be difficult and expensive. The Program was developed to relieve customers of this unexpected expense when a leak occurs in this part of a water service line. The Program covers nearly all residential single-family and residential duplex properties. There is a small number of properties not covered by the Program, due to unusual configurations.
The Program is being funded by a $1 per month fee paid by all customers who are covered by the Program – the minority of residences not covered will not be charged this fee.

The Customer Assistance Referral and Evaluation Services (CARES) Program was developed in 2010 through a partnership between Pueblo Water, the City of Pueblo, United Way of Pueblo County and Catholic Charities to aid residential Pueblo families in need of utility assistance. Customers can receive up to $125 of assistance towards their delinquent water bill once in a 12-month period and up to three contributions in a lifetime. The Customer Service Department is grateful for the continued support of the CARES Program which helps to serve Pueblo families in times of need.
For more information on the CARES Program, please call Customer Service at 719-584-0250.
