Estes Park Sanitation District
Located in the valley near Rocky Mountain National Park, EPSD is a division of local government providing wastewater collection and treatment in Estes Park Colorado. It is Colorado's oldest special district as F.O Stanley provided the land to construct the original treatment facility after the district was approved by the state legislature in 1941.
2017 Budget Passage: The 2017 Financial Budget was reviewed and passed by the directors on December 13th at 2:30 p.m. A rate increase of six percent for user fees was approved. Rates are available as an attachement to our Rate Schedule Tab. The budget will be the first to encorporate our new headworks building into the operations of the District.
The headworks building was builit in part paid with District reserves, a grant and financing available to the District through the Colorado Water Resources Power Development Authority. This resource pool was established by the Colorado Dept of Public Health and Environment to enable construction of wastewater treatment improvements such as ours. The new facility includes improvements to the influent side of operations as well as the effluent flow. Pilot studies are slated for 2017 to help us determine compliance strategies for nutrient regulations that will be enacted in 2022.
