Colorado water quality and supply issues
Water, by its nature, is easily susceptible to degradations in quality due to discharges, flooding, seepage and runoff. Water quality standards issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Environmental Protection Agency require strict compliance, since any deviations can derail commercial or municipal project plans. Pollutants, discharges, wetlands mitigation, certifications and water supply transportation are examples of water quality issues typically affecting project plans. Even after water rights permits are obtained for construction projects and Denver water treatment systems, strategic planning with legal counsel familiar with local agencies and regulations is necessary to maintain mandated compliance levels of water quality. In addition, land use plans in Colorado may affect water quality and often require government approval.
