According to the announcement, the newly formed commission is made up of 9 members representing each of three districts and two at-large members. It will be tasked with integrating existing Douglas County water provider plans into the 2050 Comprehensive Douglas County Water Plan.
Langley, who has served on the PWSD Board since 2022, has a decade of experience serving in various capacities for the Saddle Rock South Metropolitan Districts and Authority, the Citizen’s Water Advisory Committee for Aurora Water, and the PWSD Audit Committee.
Following his appointment, Director Langley expressed his dedication to representing the citizens of Douglas County. "I look forward to serving in this new capacity and thank the County Commissioners for their faith and confidence in my ability to contribute. I look forward to working collaboratively with all of our county's water providers and bringing awareness to the excellent work underway by municipal water providers to ensure long term water supplies. Together, we can ensure the responsible and sustainable management of our collective water resources," he stated.
PWSD Board President Merlin Klotz said, “I congratulate Don on representing Parker Water on the commission. While plans for storage and reuse are already in place for the county’s largest providers, for those citizens served by smaller districts or on well water - the commission has a strong opportunity to address their issues through consolidations, creating a rural water authority or other unique solutions.”
