Having grown up on a farm, Janet brings to the Board a strong work ethic and a hands-on understanding of water-related issues. Director Cederberg has worked tirelessly as a Board member to stay current in water issues at the local and state level with numerous trips to the meetings of the Upper Black Squirrel Creek Groundwater Management District, attendance of the Arkansas Basin Water Forum, El Paso County Groundwater Quality Phase 2 Study Scoping Committee, Colorado Water Congress and the Statewide Basin Roundtable Conference on the Statewide Water Supply Initiative (SWASI).
Director Cederberg has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business (Accounting), honesty, integrity, family values and a dedication to the Cimarron Hills Community. Director Cederberg was elected in spring of 2010 and is proud of the progress the District has made in bringing the new WWTP online, solving the crisis that developed with the infiltration basins that were not percolating water back into the alluvial aquifer, paying off $9 Million in outstanding bond debt that was costing the District hundreds of thousands per year in interest on water rights that were ordered abandoned due to late filing of legal paperwork in 2002 to 2007 time period, and the 400% or more increase in water rates to Schriever Air Force Base, who had not been on water restrictions and who had not received a rate increase since 1980s. Director Cederberg is committed to making decisions that make sound financial sense and getting new sources of reliable water into the District’s municipal system.
Today and into the future, Janet remains committed to helping solve the issues before the District and continues to respect and hear the individual voice. She is committed to fair and equitable customer rates and remains active in the effort to settle the expensive and damaging legal rift between Cherokee and the Upper Black Squirrel Management District through solutions that benefit the customers of both districts. She has lived in Cimarron Hills for over two decades with her husband and three daughters.
