South Durango Sanitation District serves you with dedicated, licensed, and experienced staff.
South Durango Sanitation District (SDSD) is a special district formed in 1982 pursuant to the provisions of the Colorado Special District Act. Although originally intended to serve only the south Durango area, the service area was enlarged by the inclusion of the Grandview area in 1983 and the Three Springs area in 2002.
The District completed the installation of the sewer collection system and the construction of a three-cell aerated lagoon in 1985. Since that time there have been two major expansions of the treatment facility. The first expansion, completed in 2004, converted the treatment facility to a mechanical plant needed to serve the rapidly growing customer base. The second expansion, completed in 2012, provided enhanced treatment capability and additional capacity. In 2006 SDSD completed the installation of major sewer interceptor lines in Grandview and south Durango. As a result, the SDSD wastewater system has substantial capacity in both the collection and treatment systems to serve new customers in its service area.
South Durango Sanitation District directors are elected to 4-year terms. The District Board is dedicated to maintaining a sound operation that serves its customers needs.
