Boulder Waterkeeper Presses for CDPHE Funding for Clean Water Act Enforcement

Boulder Waterkeeper has issued a public letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Colorado Governor Jared Polis calling for increased funding for enforcement of the Clean Water Act in Colorado. Currently CDPHE enforcement funding is permit based. We believe this source of funding is insufficient to address the 43% of stream miles and 75% of lakes and reservoirs in Colorado that do not meet water quality standards. Greater visibility, focus, education, funding and action is necessary for Colorado to be a leader in watershed protection.
