Colorado Gold Environmental Leadership

The Colorado Environmental Leadership Program is a voluntary program that provides the regulated environmental community with incentives to go beyond essential compliance with environmental laws and regulations.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has recognized 153 companies this year for outstanding environmental achievements that help keep Colorado a desirable place to work and live. 
The rewards recognized Colorado organizations with gold, silver and bronze designations for voluntarily going beyond compliance with federal regulations and for their commitment to continual environmental improvement.
This year's program recognized Clifton Sanitation District as a Gold Leader. The State Recognition for the highest level is Gold.  To receive the Gold, companies must have past environmental achievements, provide environmental improvement goals, maintain a fully functional Environmental Management System (EMS), and have a three-year clean compliance record.

What we do

Here at the Clifton Sanitation District we inspect, maintain, and repair and/or upgrade more than 75 miles of wastewater collection and conveyance piping throughout the Clifton area. The wastewater collected by this system is directed to our 2.5 million gallons per day wastewater treatment facility where contaminates are removed though a multistage mechanical and biological process to allow for safe discharge to the Colorado River.

Treated water from our facility will be used downstream for recreation, such as boating or fishing, intake to drinking water facilities, and habitat for fish and other aquatic organisms. Water that is not returned to the Colorado River is used at our facility to water lawns and agricultural crops. Through the treatment process a byproduct called biosolids is generated, this is used as a soil amendment on District properties.

Announcement Concerning Clifton and Palisade Agreement

Through an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between Clifton Sanitation District and the Town of Palisade, the District has agreed to allow Palisade to move forward with planning and constructing a connection from Palisade to the District’s sewer collection system and treatment facility.
