News and Events



The Central Clear Creek Sanitation District serves customers in the vicinity of unincorporated communities of Dumont, Downieville and Lawson, Colorado. The District was organized in 1963 and currently serves over 360 customers. In this mountainous terrain, it is not practical to have both a water well and a septic system that would be compliant with state requirements. Thus, the District plays a critical role in making living and working in scenic central Clear Creek County possible. 

In 2014, the District was faced with aging equipment, maintaining facilities, and meeting increasingly stringent state and federal regulations governing sanitation facilities. In May 2014, district voters approved funding for making these critical improvements. Construction on state-of-the-art treatment technology began in 2017 and was completed in 2019. 

The District is governed by a Board of Directors which meets monthly. The Waste Water Treatment Facility is managed and operated by Water Quality Control Professionals. Visit the Contact page for details.

Don't Flush It, Trash It!

The following are items are incompatible with your sanitation system. But them in the trash:

  • Paper Towels:
    • Paper towels do not disintegrate as toilet paper does.
  • Baby wipes
  • Disinfecting wipes
  • Flushable or bio-degradable wipes 
    • These are all detrimental to the wastewater collection system. These items can get hung up on pump impellers or combine with fats, oil and grease (FOG) to form large balls that block pipes.
  • Facial tissues: such as Kleenex, Puffs, etc.
  • Sponges, rags and towels
  • Feminine products
  • Diapers
  • Cotton swabs, cotton balls: These do not disintegrate as toilet paper does.
