Environmental effects of wastewater management were considered for six areas outside of the Durango City limits in La Plata County, Colorado. Three basic wastewater management alternatives were proposed for each Study Area: (1) No Action, (2) Formation of a Maintenance District, and (3) Sewers, either with a local treatment facility or with connections to the City of Durango's system. Environmental impacts of the No Action and Maintenance District alternatives include possible degradation of water quality, potential public health threats, and septage and sludge disposal. While it would reduce these impacts and save electrical energy, the sewer alternative might lead to increased growth rates, strip development along the sewer lines, and increased population density.
