Careers

Join Our Team

With an inviting culture and long-standing history, Northern Water is committed to hiring and retaining the best employees. Our organization is growing and we’re seeking employees who are passionately committed to helping Northern Water collect and deliver water to 1 million people and about 615,000 acres of irrigated crop land. We employ more than 145 people, with the majority of them based at our beautiful Berthoud headquarters, and about 20 employees based in scenic Grand County on the West Slope of the Continental Divide. We employ a variety of professions including engineers, IT professionals, financial services, construction and maintenance workers, administrative and more.   

Northern Water was created as a public agency in 1937 to operate the Colorado-Big Thompson Project, which delivers water to portions of eight Northeastern Colorado counties. In addition, because of  economic and population growth in our service area, we are developing two new future water supplies, Chimney Hollow Reservoir Project and Northern Integrated Supply Project, which will help meet the growing water needs of the region for generations to come.  

Employees enjoy a competitive compensation and excellent benefit package. This is an exciting time to become a part of Northern Water as we embark on building two of the largest water storage projects in recent United States history. Northern Water is proud of its reputation as a leading water delivery, conservation and management organization, not only in the western United States, but across the nation.
