SDS: Working with Property Owners

To build SDS, Colorado Springs Utilities at times must buy easements and a small number of properties to install pipeline and build pump stations and reservoirs.

We understand your property is very important to you. We are committed to being a good neighbor and have an established process to ensure your interests are protected. When we buy an easement or a property, you receive just compensation based on the fair market value. With easements, you retain the ownership.

We want to work cooperatively with you during these transactions and throughout the construction and restoration of your property. During construction, we do our best to reduce disturbance and disruption. When work ends, our contractors restore your property.
