Public Water Services. Bear Creek Water and Sanitation District is a water distributor of Denver Water under a Read and Bill Water Service Agreement. Denver Water provides the water supply and controls the sale, setting and reading of water meters.  Denver Water bills the District’s customers based on Read-and-Bill water rates established by the Denver Board of Water Commissioners. Bear Creek Water and Sanitation District collects $7.00 per month per single-family residental equivalent (SFRE) on the Denver Water billing to recover costs associated with the water distribution system which is owned and maintained by Bear Creek Water and Sanitation District. 

Public Sanitary Sewer Services. Wastewater flows by gravity from the connectors in the District through the District’s public sanitary sewer collection lines to the Robert W. Hite Treatment Facility of the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District (MWRD) for treatment. This sewage treatment is provided under a Connectors Agreement between MWRD and Bear Creek. Bear Creek bills sewer use fees to the District’s customers to recover the District’s expenses for sewage treatment charges paid to MWRD, the cost of billing, operations and maintenance and planned capital improvement projects.
