Who We Are


 The District

The Evergreen Metropolitan District was created February 27th, 1979 when the water treatment and distribution system was acquired from Public Service Company of Colorado and merged with the Evergreen Sanitation District. The Evergreen Sanitation District was formed October 15th, 1948. The District currently owns, operates and maintains one wastewater treatment plant, three wastewater pump stations, one water treatment plant, nine water pump stations and ten water reservoirs. The District also maintains approximately 300 miles of wastewater collection system piping and an equal amount of water distribution piping.

Other Mountain Districts

EMD maintains inter-district agreements with many water and sanitation districts within the mountain area. These Districts include West Jefferson County Metropolitan, Kittredge Sanitation and Water, Upper Bear Creek Water and Sanitation, and El Rancho Metropolitan. Inter-district agreements allow the Evergreen Metropolitan District to operate and maintain the West Jefferson County and Kittredge wastewater treatment plants and all of the collection system piping and eight pump stations within the other districts.


The EMD Board of Directors oversees the operations of the District personnel. The Board is comprised of local businesspersons and property owners who must operate under Colorado statutes regarding special districts. Additionally, the other districts that EMD serves, must conduct business under those same statutes.


EMD is an organization composed of departments including Wastewater, Water, Maintenance, Collection/Distribution, Meter Services and Administration. The District has twenty-nine full-time employees.

Operations Department--Wastewater Division

The Wastewater Division is comprised of Treatment Plant Operations, Maintenance, and Pretreatment departments. The Division operates and maintains three wastewater treatment plants, eleven pump stations, and approximately 300 miles of sewer lines.  Operations of the treatment plants consist of sampling and testing, monitoring, evaluating and adjusting processes and equipment to meet discharge limits mandated by State and Federal regulations. Treatment Plant and Pump Station operations are monitored by computer and telemetry technologies. Pretreatment is the active program designed to protect personnel, the sewerage collection system and treatment plants from hazardous, dangerous or toxic discharges which could affect public health or the environment.

Water Division

The Water Department is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the water treatment plant and the distribution system (pump stations and reservoirs). Operations of the water treatment plant consist of sampling and testing, evaluating, monitoring the system using computer technologies, and making equipment and process adjustments.

The Division is responsible for the installation of water mains and the tapping of water and wastewater service lines to District mains. The Division also inspects the installation of wastewater mains by contractors and performs service line locates.
