The Parker Water and Sanitation District is one of three special districts to be given a collaboration award this year.
The award was given by the Special District Association of Colorado during an annual conference Sept. 10-12 in Keystone. The collaboration award is given to districts “that have effectively and efficiently partnered with other entities and local governments” to benefit water users, according to a news release.
The PWSD joined with the Rampart Range and Sierra Ridge metro districts on a sewer system for the RidgeGate development in Lone Tree, which is served by Parker Water. The joint effort resulted in reduced infrastructure costs for citizens and an award for all three districts.
Ann Terry, the executive director of the Special District Association, said the project is a “true testament to the success that can be achieved through partnerships.”
