The City of Durango's water primarily comes from the Florida River (not the Animas River). Demands on our water supply from population growth and changes in the environment require our water division to be the best stewards of this valuable resource. Please watch this video on where Durango's drinking water comes from and the processes it goes through to become potable (safe to drink).
