FAQs About Sewer (Wastewater)

What is wastewater (sanitary sewer)? 

Wastewater or sewage is the byproduct of many uses of water such as showering, dishwashing, laundry and flushing the toilet. After the water has been used, it enters the household’s wastewater pipeline and once it connects to the District’s main wastewater pipeline, the wastewater flows to the Littleton/Englewood Wastewater Treatment Plant where it is treated.

What is the District’s responsibility regarding water and sewer (wastewater) lines? 

The homeowner is responsible for the water and sewer (wastewater) service pipelines beginning at their property line to and throughout their home. The District owns, operates, maintains and repairs all water and sewer (wastewater) main lines. Main lines are large pipelines generally located in streets or open spaces, which serve more than one residence or facility.

Why are sewer (wastewater) services always the same amount each month? 

The District charges a flat monthly fee that is the same for all residents. The current monthly charge for sewer (wastewater) services can be found on our Fees Schedule which is located on this website under the Sewer tab.
