Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Region

Region 8 serves the states of:

  • Colorado
  • New Mexico

UTC Region 8 is a unique region not only because of its geographic diversity but also due to the diverse customers it serves. Serving all facets of utilities, water, gas, and electric; our priority is the customer. We strive for reliability and consistency. This is evident in the educational sessions developed and showcased at our two regional meetings as well as our involvement on the national level.

A parallel aspect that Region 8 prides itself on is our ability to facilitate networking opportunities not only at the regional meeting but also year round. By doing so we keep a pulse on the heartbeat of the industry, in turn this helps us better understand and gauge our direction.
