Wheat Ridge Sanitation District was founded in 1948, and now includes about 6,000 customers. We are not part of the City of Wheat Ridge or part of any water district. In fact, five different sanitation districts include parts of Wheat Ridge in their boundaries.
We collect sanitary sewer only (sinks and toilets). We do not collect storm water runoff, nor do we collect trash.
Our sewage is treated by the Metropolitan Wastewater Reclamation District. We are responsible for maintenance, repair and replacement of the sewer main lines located in streets and alleys.
An elected, five-member Board of Directors governs our District. For more information, please see our 2018 Wheat Ridge Sanitation District Transparency Notice.
