Dear UTSD Customers,

We are relieved to see you return from the Thompson Zone Fire mandatory evacuations. Flow is returning to the wastewater treatment plant and the plant continues to operate normally, although, the tertiary treatment is currently offline due to low flows and cold temperatures. We confident there will be no permit violations. The plant was staffed continuously throughout the most threatening times. All the District departments pitched in to see the District through this period of emergency, with the support of our Board of Directors and District Engineer. The District also reached out to the neighboring Districts-Estes Park Sanitation and the Town of Grand Lake. While this crisis is still unfolding, we are confident the District will see the other side unscathed.
