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.

JEFFERSON COUNTY PUBLIC SEWER DISTRICT

Who we are:

The Jefferson County Public Sewer District was formed by the Jefferson County Commission in June of 2000. The District remained largely silent until March of 2007 when a Board of Trustees was first appointed and tasked with correcting longstanding sewer and water issues within the Raintree Plantation Development south of Hillsboro, Missouri. The Districts' boundaries include all unincorporated Jefferson County with the exception of territories and watersheds already served by a District or municipality such as: Northeast Public Sewer District, Rock Creek Public Sewer District, Glaize Creek Public Sewer District, Selma Village Sewer District, Lake Adelle Sewer District, and Valle Lake Sewer District. 

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 the County, 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 elimination of septic tanks (only on as deemed necessary by the Board).

Prior to the District's formation, wastewater treatment systems serving many subdivisions in unincorporated Jefferson County were operated and maintained by individuals or homeowner associations. Often these systems were not monitored by a licensed and trained operator and failed to meet Missouri water quality standards.

Since 2012 the Jefferson County Public Sewer District has doubled in size with the additions of Sunrise Acres in Cedar Hill, Brookside Parc and Sandy Branch subdivisions in Hillsboro, The Falls at Little Creek subdivision in Festus, and House Springs Sewer Company.  

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.
