Triview Newsletter — April 2024

Meet Our New District Administrator, Sara Lamb

The Triview Metropolitan District is excited to announce the arrival of our new district administrator, Sara Lamb. With a comprehensive background in managing utility services, oil and gas operations, and real estate ventures, Sara’s expertise in business and management is a valuable addition to our team.  

Sara joins us from a Denver-area water and sewer district where she honed her skills as a district administrative manager. She has a background as a financial operations manager and served as a principal stormwater inspector at an oil and gas engineering company. Sara also brings substantial knowledge of real estate contract administration. These various roles have equipped her with a versatile skill set that is sure to benefit Triview in numerous ways.  

On a personal note, Sara shares a passion for aviation with her husband John, a retired airline pilot and entrepreneur. Together, they enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, fishing and biking, but spending time with their family is their favorite activity. Their children are spread throughout Colorado in places like Bayfield, Highlands Ranch and Morrison. Sara also is an avid artist who enjoys painting, crafting and sewing during her leisure time.   

Sara and John look forward to immersing themselves in the Monument community, leaving behind their current home in Lone Tree. Please join us in welcoming Sara to our team.

Northern Delivery System Updates

The Northern Delivery System (NDS) pump station’s exterior is complete. Inside, three pumps stand ready to transport water from the Highway 83 reservoir to our C-Plant storage within the Sanctuary neighborhood via a six-mile pipeline. Extensive testing of the pipeline will take place during the last two weeks of June, with a July substantial completion date on the horizon. This marks a milestone for Triview and Forest Lakes residents, as we shift toward sustainable water sources by moving away from Denver Basin’s limited groundwater. The NDS is a key piece in our journey to an independent and renewable water supply network for our community. 

Spring Road Repairs Planned

As the mercury fluctuates between the mid-60s and the brisk single digits, it’s a telltale sign that spring is gracing Colorado with its unpredictable presence. Given that the promise of consistent warmth is just around the corner, our district is already preparing for the upcoming road maintenance and repair season. Rest assured – we will be focusing on a few key enhancements to make our community even better. 

This spring, we’re focusing on the residential stretch of Promontory Pointe from Lyons Tail Road to St. Lawrence Way, including a portion of Gleneagle Drive. 

Another project we hope to undertake this summer will be adding a turn lane off of Leather Chaps on to Creekside Drive, adjacent to Bear Creek Elementary. Triview is installing this turn lane to create a safer experience for families who are dropping off and picking up young students. Installation of this turn lane will involve widening Leather Chaps to accommodate the additional lane. The work should be performed in mid- to late May, but Mother Nature will have the final say on our schedule. 

NCMI Wastewater Project Moving Ahead

The regional wastewater project known as the North Monument Creek Interceptor (NMCI) is continuing to move forward, albeit at a slower pace than we previously expected. If completed, the NMCI would collect wastewater flows from Triview and Forest Lakes and transport those flows for treatment in Colorado Springs via a 10-mile pipeline.

In 2021, Triview, Forest Lakes Metropolitan District and Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU) signed the NMCI Design Participation agreement. The purpose of that agreement was to quantify the percentage of design costs each participant would contribute.  

A design engineer is now on board and they are working on preliminary design plans that should be completed this summer. These plans will encompass an initial 30% of the project’s design, and it is upon this fraction that the cost estimates will be calculated. Engineers will then review the design and project costs and will work with CSU and the partners to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of the proposed project vs. other options, including continuing operation of the existing Upper Monument Plant. We will keep you informed of the project plans as they unfold.
