The District

South Fork Water and Sanitation District was formed in 1978 to serve the people of South Fork with a community-wide sewer system, and has gone through many changes since then, adding several parcels of land to grow to its present size.  The District has over 40 miles of pipe and 9 pump stations to feed our 3-pond lagoon system.  We have had a lot of general and specific maintenance projects over the years to keep the system in good shape, but after over 40 years, some parts need more repairs than others.

At this time, we are working with Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and WestWater Engineering (our Engineer) to do a total reengineering and rebuild of one of our pump stations to keep the system working up to CDPHE standards.  However, we know that with new environmental regulations coming soon from CDPHE, we will be looking at more maintenance projects to stay compliant with State regulations.

In the near future we will need to do a lot of work to our Lagoon system, either in rebuilding the lagoon ponds or replacing them entirely with a new system.  We are waiting from CDPHE to tell us what we have to do to stay complaint with our Discharge permit.   As we know more, we will let the residents of South Fork know what the future plans will be.
