History of the District

The Morrison Creek Metropolitan Water & Sanitation District was formed in 1972 as the vehicle to provide water and sanitation service for the Woodmoor Corporation’s Stagecoach Development. We are a Colorado Title 32 Special District governed by a five person elected Board of Directors who meet on a monthly basis. The District encompasses 11,500 acres in South Routt County Colorado.

Currently the District serves approximately 400 single family living units via central water and sewer lines and another 110 homes which are on individual wells and vaults. The District maintains 70,000 feet of water line, 75,000 feet of sewer line, two 500,000 gallon water storage tanks, four wells, two booster pump stations, two sewage lift stations, a wastewater treatment plant and many hydrants, valves, manholes and associated equipment.

The demise of the Woodmoor Corporation in the mid 70’s and subsequent bankruptcy of the District have resulted in many challenges for the District and Stagecoach area. Anticipated development and growth has occurred at a much slower rate than projected. The District successfully completed the performance of the bankruptcy plan in August 2000 and is now debt free with a reasonable level of reserves. 

Interest in the area is on the increase, several new service connections have recently been added.
