At UTSD we take our jobs very seriously. We know you are counting on us to keep the wastewater sanitation
system running smoothly, our waterways clean, our wildlife healthy, and our environment pristine. You may

Our primary focus is on providing customers with reliable sanitation service every day. Through three floods and one massive fire, we have been here for you maintaining the most essential service, your sewer system.

Our Environment

Disinfecting and cleaning wastewater is a complex and highly regulated process. At UTSD, we ensure the quality of the water entering the Big Thompson River meets the regulations established by the EPA and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

We provide the sanitation infrastructure the region depends on. We are planning systems that will grow with the demands, development, and seasonal fluctuations of our community and economy.
