Wastewater Treatment Plant
The Town of Fraser, Grand County Water and Sanitation District Number 1, and Winter Park Ranch Water and Sanitation District, both Special Districts governed by Colorado State Statute and regulated by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, all share in the ownership and operation of the Upper Fraser Valley Wastewater Treatment Plant. The joint treatment plant was constructed and brought on line in 2004 to serve the properties in the Town limits including the properties inside the two Special Districts boundaries.
The Town of Fraser is the Joint Facilities Manager and has the responsibility for management and operation of the Joint Facilities Wastewater Treatment Plant.
While the Town of Fraser is responsible for management and operations of the Upper Fraser Valley Wastewater Treatment Plant, oversight of the plant is provided by the Joint Facilities Oversight Committee (JFOC), comprised of members of each Special District and members of the Fraser Board of Trustees. The committee is not a separate political entity and each member serves at the pleasure of their respective political subdivision. The JFOC represents the three partners for the purposes of construction, expanding, operating, managing and maintaining the Joint Facilities for the benefit of the partners, and communicating with the Joint Facilities Manager.

The Upper Fraser Valley Wastewater Treatment Plant is permitted as an activated sludge facility with a hydraulic design capacity of two million gallons of wastewater per day (2.0 M.G.D.).
