Welcome To Cañon City, Colorado

Welcome to Cañon City... your "gateway to adventure." Our community has a rich cultural heritage and interesting geologic history. We embrace our past and plan for an exciting future. Ours is a truly special community, with abundant recreational opportunities, vast open space from the plains to the Rocky Mountains, parks and trails, community events all year long, and of course the Arkansas River and the Royal Gorge. If you live here you know what I mean. If you are considering relocating your home or business, you will discover it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to seeing you around town or out on the trail. Mayor Preston R. Troutman

The City of Cañon City Water Department invites you to join in commemorating 146 years of service to Cañon City’s public health. As part of National Drinking Water Week, the City Water Department is recognizing the generations of Cañon residents who ensured that our community had an ample supply of safe drinking water.

The City of Cañon City Water Department and City residents have worked together to help ensure the standard of living we all now enjoy. We want to let you know a little bit more about how we have done it. You are invited to an Open House at our Water Treatment Plant at 103 Tunnel Drive on Friday, May 11th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm for informative tours of our facility and have available staff to answer your questions about your water supply. Water Treatment Plant tours will begin at the top of each hour. If you have a group that would prefer a private tour or at another time, please contact Travis Payne, Cañon City Water Treatment Plant Chief Plant Operator, at 269-9019. Please come join us!
