The Morrison Creek Water and Sanitation District was formed in 1972 as the vehicle to provide water and sanitation service for the Woodmoor Corporation's Stagecoach Development. We are a Colorado Title 32 Special District deriving revenue from property taxes, service fees and hook-up charges. The District is governed by a five person elected Board of Directors who meet on a monthly basis. The District encompasses 11,500 acres in South Routt County Colorado.

Currently the District serves 348 single family living units via central water and sewer lines and another 42 homes which are on indivdual wells and vaults. The District maintains 70,000 feet of waterline, 75,000 feet of sewerline, two 500,000 gallon water storage tanks, three wells, two booster pump stations, one sewage lift station, a wastewater treatment plant and many hydrants, valves, manholes and associated equipment. We have three full time employees at the present time.

The demise of the Woodmoor Corporation in the mid 70's and subsequent bankruptcy of the District have resulted in many challenges for the District and Stagecoach area. Anticipated development and growth has occurred at a much slower rate than projected. The District successfully completed performance of it's bankruptcy plan in August 2000 and is now debt free with a reasonable level of reserves. Interest in the area is on the increase and a number of new service connections have been added in the last several years. The District provides quality drinking water and sanitation services to it's customers. Subdivisions served include Eagleswatch (80 lots) Meadowgreen (90 lots) and Blackhorse II (70 lots). There are several projects underway for extension of the District's services to other areas. Recently the District created a new entity, the "Water Activity Enterprise", to provide a vehicle for those wishing to finance extensions of the District's services to unserved areas within the District.
