Blue River approves sewer annexation

Summit County, CO Colorado

The town of Blue River on Tuesday approved gradually replacing septic systems with sewers for most of the town’s estimated 680 residents.

The Upper Blue Sanitation District will annex the town to supply the services following a 72-12 vote in a special election, according to district manager Andy Carlberg.

Though residents historically have voted against any potential intrusion into the town’s rural character, the advantages appear to have outweighed any concerns.

Presently, most of the town’s residents use septic systems. The threat of failing systems, the expense of replacing them and the gradually increasing population density affected the decision to pursue a connection to the sewer system.

The district was formerly known as the Breckenridge Sanitation District.
