Reclamation Facility


In November of 2008, the voting population of the Colorado Centre Metropolitan District voted majority YES to the planned funding for the Lower Fountain Wastewater Treatment Plant as part of a Coordinated Election. Analysis of conditions affecting the sewer plant project for the  CCMD was mailed to all residents and an environmental assessment was completed for the project.

In May of 2010, the Ground Breaking for the Harold D. Thompson Regional Water Reclamation Facility was held. The facility serves the Jimmy Camp Creek Basin with a treatment capacity of 6.0 million gallons per day.


In June of 2011 Smith Environmental and Engineering was retained by the LFMSDD to complete a Class I and Class III archaeological inventory of the 60 acres site. This Cultural Resource Survey was completed in August of 2011 and recommended the site as not eligible for listing on the National Register.  The site was completed on August 22, 2013. It is dedicated to Harold D. Thompson for his many years of loyal service in the sanitation districts and local community. The CCMD began transmitting its bulk sewage to the new reclamation facility in May of 2014.

More information about the Reclamation Facility can be found on the LFMSDD Website.
