The City and Colorado Springs Utilities work together to provide streetlight services to residents of Colorado Springs. The City pays about $4 million annually for Springs Utilities to operate and maintain more than 27,000 streetlights.

The mission of the City and Springs Utilities streetlights team is to own, efficiently operate and maintain and continuously improve the streetlight system, which is comprised of street lighting and associated infrastructure for all public streets within the municipal limits of the City of Colorado Springs.

Our small but effective streetlights team responds to over 500 streetlights issues per month. Springs Utilities conducts night runs on 25 major arterial routes twice per year, resolving any issues they find. Residents can also report streetlight issues. The vast majority of streetlights issues the team resolves fall in one of the three categories below:



If you need assistance with any of these streetlight-related issues, please send your request to askus@csu.orgPlease include streetlight pole numbers, nearest street address, or cross streets in your request.
