The Public Works Department oversees Utilities (Water and Sewer) and works with contract Operators in Responsible Charge (ORCs) to manage these services for the Town of Fairplay.

ORCs are individuals certified by the State of Colorado Water and Wastewater Facility Operators Certification Board as Certified Water Professionals to operate and maintain a water or wastewater system in Colorado. Current ORCs for the Town are mdeline [at] fairplayco.us (Marty Deline) and Keith Chisholm and they control, supervise, and actively operate the Town's Water and Wastewater Plants and actively participate in the maintenance of these facilities, making process control and system integrity decisions. The ORCs also train and supervise other system workers (Public Works Maintenance Staff) in the performance of daily activities such as general system operations, sampling, safety, emergency response and reporting and recordkeeping.
