Little Colorado Sanitary District was incorporated in 1987 for the purpose of maintaining ground water quality in and around the community of Greer, Arizona. Engineering and construction proceeded over the ensuing two years, and the system went online in 1990. The District employs a small diameter, overland flow design to process wastewater and sewage. Solid wastes are retained on each property to be digested by naturally occurring bacteria in a solids separation tank, while liquid effluent flows out of the tank into the District’s sewer lines and thence to the processing plant north of Greer.
The District serves approximately 525 customers. It is governed by five elected Directors who meet monthly to transact District business. Meetings usually occur on the second Monday of the month and are open to the public. Agendas are posted in the community the week before each meeting.
