Mountain Mutual Water Company (MMWC) is the water supply and distribution entity for the Cripple Creek Mountain Estates property owners. It is the mission of MMWC to provide water to its member customers with the greatest safety and quality possible and to maintain the system for reliability and economy well into the future.
MMWC draws its water from wells located in the "Gillette Flats" area of Teller County. MMWC is regulated by federal and state laws and tests its water accordingly.
Notices and Announcements
- Effective July 2018, changes to our fee schedule have been made. One, for the convenience of part-time occupants, is a change that allows for the voluntary turn-off of water. It is now NO CHARGE to have the water turned off. Turning water back on has been reduced to $25. It is hoped this will discourage users from lifting the meter up to do these tasks. Lifting the meter can cause damage to the lines that connect to the meter. Repair of these lines can be expensive for the user. Also, our new meters incorporate a tamper sensor. If a user is found to be tampering with the meter, a new charge of $250 will be imposed; it may also result in turning off the water service and locking it out until the issue is resolved with the user.
- MMWC is replacing meters. This will take time since the replacements are being done by MMWC volunteers. This could cause some billing to have more than a month's usage at some point. That will be made up with a shorter billing period the following month. We hope this does not create confusion, but if you have questions, call the office. The new meters are being replaced at no additional cost to users. The current metering system is becoming obsolete. Fortunately the new meter system will reduce the meter reading time from 3 days to about 2-3 hours. Over a period of time that will save the company enough to pay for the new metering system.
- The Board of Directors schedule their monthly meetings for the second Monday of the month at 6:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend. Occassionally the meetings are canceled or postponed, so it is recommended that one check with the office prior to attending.
