About CoWARN 

CoWARN is a statewide Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (WARN) of “utilities helping utilities” to:

  • Prepare for the next natural or human-caused emergency.
  • Organize response according to established requirements
  • Share personnel and other resources statewide, by agreement.

The Mission of CoWARN
The mission of the CoWARN network is to support and promote statewide emergency preparedness, disaster response and mutual aid assistance for public and private water and wastewater utilities for natural and human caused events.


The purpose of CoWARN is to facilitate a formalized system for water and wastewater utilities to help each other with mutual aid during emergency situations. CoWARN is a partnership between utilities, various state and local agencies, and water and wastewater organizations.

The CoWARN Mutual Aid Agreement is available to all public and private water and wastewater utilities in Colorado. Participation in any emergency response is voluntary, and membership in CoWARN does not obligate members to offer or accept aid.

All actions, recommendations, etc. are made in accordance with the articles of the CoWARN Mutual Aid Agreement.
