All of South Adams County Water

The Brighton Road Interceptor Project will install a new 30-inch sanitary sewer line. The new line will connect an existing SACWSD sewer at 120th Avenue and Brighton Road, to a newly built Metro Water Recovery sanitary sewer near 123rd Avenue and Brighton Road.

This new pipeline is part of long-term planning by SACWSD and will allow for the elimination of a lift station facility, which is located near 120th Avenue and Brighton Road. There are many benefits to eliminating a lift station and conveying flows in a gravity sewer, including the elimination of operation and maintenance costs related to the lift station, as well as eliminating the risk of sanitary sewer emergencies that could occur at a lift station.

The project has been reviewed for approval by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Adams County, and SACWSD, and construction is expected to begin in late summer 2024 and be completed in spring of 2025.

Once the project begins, home and business owners along Brighton Road between 120th Avenue and 123rd Avenue will be impacted to varying degrees by construction activities for the duration of the project. Some impacts that the neighborhood may notice are closures to through traffic on Brighton Road (local traffic will have consistent access); increased construction traffic in the area due to construction workers, material deliveries and haul-off; increased noise during the day due to active construction; and temporary asphalt patches in the project area. Once the pipeline installation is complete, Brighton Road will be completely milled and overlaid with new asphalt to leave a smooth, new road surface between 120th Avenue and 123rd Avenue.

If you have any questions or comments about the project please contact the Distribution, Collections, & Development Manager, Marc Johns, by email at or phone at 720-206-0511.
