Timbers Water and Sanitation District

The Timbers Water and Sanitation District is a Special District for the purpose of supplying water and wastewater services to District members. The District is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of five Directors. The Directors are volunteers who are elected under the statutes of the State of Colorado, with staggered terms of three years.

The District must comply with strict state regulations for water supply. Regular water testing is required by the State, and an annual Water Quality Report (CCR) is sent to property owners. In 2012 the District dug a well and in 2013-2014 built a new water treatment plant with the intent to draw most of its water from the well and supplement it during periods of high use with the McKinnis Creek water. The District also replaced and repaired the fire hydrants and refurbished the water storage tank.

The District built a new state of the art sanitation system in 2022 which replaced the forty-year-old lagoon system near Routt County Road 201.  The work done included work on the main sewer lines and a new location and treatment system for the sewer treatment plant. This was required by the State of Colorado to bring the sewer system up to the current standards and allow proper permitting.  The District has acquired grants and low interest loans to help pay for the new sewer treatment facility. All lots in Timbers Preserve have septic systems and do not participate in the Timbers Sanitation System.
