Accessibility Statement

At Upper Thompson Sanitation District and utsd.colorado.gov we are committed to making our services broadly accessible, including ensuring digital accessibility to all users regardless of ability. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities.

Our accessibility tests on the site’s pages include (but are not limited to) testing for the following: correct heading structure, good keyboard operability, sufficient color contrast, and screen reader support. We are aware of some areas on the website where we could improve accessibility. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
