The New Services and Environmental (NSE) Department performs all residential service connections and verifies that private contractors are installing water and sewer mains and service lines according to District Regulations and Procedures. NSE guides builders and developers through the service application process with information on how best to serve their new home or subdivision with water and sewer. NSE staff samples and monitors water quality in the Bear Creek Watershed from Summit Lake on Mount Evans through Lakewood. NSE staff samples for nutrients, temperature, and fish and bug life among many other parameters in Bear Creek . NSE monitors wastewater effluent quality from commercial properties to ensure that pretreatment of these wastewater streams are not harmful to District Plant Operations or workers. NSE is responsible for maintaining mapping, As-Built and GIS information for all of the Districts water and sewer infrastructure. NSE provides information and technical support to all other departments of the Evergreen Metropolitan District.
NSE is also responsible for locating water and sewer lines. We are a "Tier 1" locating service with Colorado 811, which means when homeowners or other agencies call 811 a request is sent directly to the NSE department to locate water & sewer lines for emergency or planned situations.
