The City of Brush does not provide gas and electricity. Local providers include Xcel Energy and REA


Water

The City provides pristine water from our very own well field, drawing from the Beaver Creek aquifer. We maintain 10 wells, 4 booster pumps, two 2.35 million-gallon storage tanks. We also maintain 1,700 water services with meters, fire hydrants, and approximately 6.5 miles of transmission lines and 36.5 miles of distribution water lines.


If you are having problems with your water service, please contact City Hall at 842-5001.

We bill in arrears, so the bill you receive the first of every month is actually for the previous month. Summer months are particularly high because of the yard watering. If you think your bill is incorrect, call City Hall (842-5001) and we can check your meter.

Monthly bills are the property owner's responsibility and are sent to the property owner. Renter's should work out payment details with the landlord.
