Project or Election Questions? Come to the Board Meeting on October 11th

Here in Colorado, we all know how important water is in our daily lives. Showers, coffee, the food we eat, and even a simple bottle of water; how could we make it through a day without water? That’s exactly the question the Value of Water Campaign is asking with their third Imagine a Day Without Water social media enrichment push.

REMEMBER – IT’S A TOILET, NOT A TRASHCAN! SOME THINGS JUST DON’T BELONG IN THE TOILET…

Toilets are only meant for one activity, and you know what we’re talking about!  When the wrong thing is flushed, results can include costly backups on your own property or problems at your local wastewater treatment plant.  That’s why it is so important to treat toilets properly and flush only your personal contributions to the local wastewater treatment plant.

HOW MUCH SEWER SERVICE PIPE IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY WHEN THE PIPES BREAK?

District staff are frequently asked who is responsible to repair breaks on the sewer service pipes--the District or the customer?

This is the pipe that extend between the District’s sewer main, usually located in the street, and the customer’s residence or business.  Under District regulations, which are consistent with most other Colorado sewer service providers, the customer owns and maintains the entire sewer pipe up to, and including, the connection to the District’s main, regardless of whether the pipe is located in the street or on the customer’s property.  Therefore the District does not provide any repair services on the sewer service pipe, whether located in the street or on the customer’s property.
