The Jefferson County Public Sewer District was formed by the Jefferson County Commission in 2000. The governing body of the District was appointed in 2007. The Board’s main goal is to assure that wastewater collection and treatment protect public health and the environment as efficiently and as economically as possible. In order to meet this goal, the Board endeavors to ensure that all new and existing wastewater treatment facilities meet State and Federal requirements for discharge and operations. The Board strives to minimize the number of treatment facilities, both private and public in Jefferson County.
Jefferson County Public Sewer District is dedicated to expanding and consolidating local water and sewer systems in a professional manner that meets or exceeds customer expectations for dependable service, as well as protecting human health, preserving natural resources, and encouraging responsible economic growth and development.
The District was originally established as a public sewer district under Chapter 249 of the Revised Statutes of the State of Missouri. In an effort to reach more unserved and underserved residents of Jefferson County. The Jefferson County Public Sewer District successfully petitioned the Circuit Court to reorganize under Chapter 204 of the Revised Statutes of the State of Missouri in 2013. This reorganization allows the District the option to subdivide its territories into Sanitary Sewer Improvement Areas and seek low interest financing for consolidation of existing wastewater treatment facilities and the elimination of septic tanks.
Jefferson County Public Sewer District continues to move towards their goal of regionalization of the County’s wastewater treatment through acquisition, capital improvements, and consolidation of existing systems.
