According the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, "The main objective of protection planning is to minimize potential contaminate threats to public drinking water supplies. This is achieved throughout the planning process by identifying and implementing 'best management practices' that will protect your specific source water area. To aid in this process we provide technical and financial support to community members and public water systems interested in developing source water protection plans.
"The Protection Planning Process includes:
The first meeting of the Steering Committee was held on February 21, 2018. Paul Hempel with the Colorado Rural Water Association and source water protection consultant presented an overview of the Source Water Protection Planning process. Those in attendance at this meeting include three District residents, two members of the Board of Directors, an El Paso County government representative, the District's engineer, and the District's manager.
The next Steering Committee meeting will be held on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at 2:00 PM in the District's Administration & Maintenance Building conference room. Any District resident who is interested in being on the Steering Committee may make their interest known by attending this meeting or by emailing the District's manager, Leon Gomes, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
