SFCSD Independence

South Fort Collins Sanitation District (SFCSD) and Fort Collins-Loveland Water District (FCLWD) are working on mutually agreeable changes to their facilities and management sharing agreement at the request of the SFCSD to separate operations and become two fully independently staffed districts. The anticipated separation is planned to be completed by the end of 2023.

This decision comes after an official vote by the South Fort Collins Sanitation District Board of Directors on June 8, 2022 at which time the board appointed their own district manager and took action to properly align staff to support the two entities. Over the coming months, FCLWD will continue to provide administrative services per the current agreement until the transition date is reached. Both districts are actively collaborating to support the objective for separate and independent operation while continuing to provide high-quality, secure, reliable and affordable water and wastewater reclamation services.

The districts have had a close partnership and shared operations, management and administrative staff for almost 60 years. As the districts have grown, technology and regulatory requirements have advanced. South Fort Collins Sanitation District Board of Directors determined it was in the best interest of its customers and its focus on water reclamation, to develop dedicated staff. Over the coming months, South Fort Collins Sanitation District Board of Directors and district leadership will work together closely on hiring, establishing new organizational charts, developing new processes, and distributing ongoing customer communication to help provide a positive experience for customers while continuing to provide high-quality water reclamation services in northern Colorado we are all accustomed to.
