  2. The Board of Directors of Platte Canyon has agreed to provide sanitary sewer maintenance and general administrative services to Valley Sanitation District. An intergovernmental agreement similar to contracts previously executed with Bow Mar, Columbine, and Lochmoor Water and Sanitation Districts was approved by both district boards June 22, 2007.

    Valley provides sanitary sewer service to approximately 2,000 homes and businesses generally located between Belleview Ave. and Quincy Ave. and between Federal Blvd. and Sheridan Blvd. The District is partially located in the Cities of Englewood, Littleton, Denver, and Sheridan.

    Valley owns 137,000 feet of sanitary sewer pipe which will now be operated and maintained by Platte Canyon. In addition to preventive sewer video inspection, cleaning and root removal services, Platte Canyon will also provide 24 hour emergency response service.

    Platte Canyon also has administrative and facility maintenance agreements with Bow Mar, Columbine, and Lochmoor Water and Sanitation Districts. These districts are generally too small to individually retain permanent staff and purchase equipment to properly maintain their facilities. Platte Canyon offers consistent, reliable service provided by knowledgeable, dedicated employees. The District’s Boards of Directors are thus relieved of the burden of constantly searching for reliable, efficient private contractors who can provide consistent preventive as well as emergency maintenance services.

    Platte Canyon, benefits from the intergovernmental agreements by defraying a portion of its employment, equipment and overhead costs. The agreements are thus truly mutually beneficial to all of the entities involved.
