Security Water and Sanitation Districts provide vital water and wastewater management services to about 19,000 people in an area immediately south of Colorado Springs, Colorado. The districts were formed in 1954 in El Paso County, the same year nearby Camp Carson became Fort Carson, a U.S. Army installation.


A team of water and wastewater professionals, overseen by an elected board of directors, manages Security Water and Sanitation Districts. Residents elect board members to a four-year term and elections are held every two years (in even-numbered years) in May.

Board meetings are normally held the third Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at our office.


Special districts are local government bodies that are created to provide specific services that address public needs, such as water and wastewater services. The Colorado General Assembly authorized special districts in 1949, making Security Water and Sanitation Districts among the oldest special districts in the state. The law that governs special districts is Colorado Revised Statutes Title 32.
