    OTHER DOCUMENTS ON PUBLIC NOTICE

    The Water Quality Control Division is accepting public comment on the two draft variance decisions below for draft permit certification COX631082. Please send comments to randi.johnson-hufford@state.co.us by June 27, 2022. The draft variance and non-final versions of the permit certification and fact sheet can be found here:

    The division is accepting comments on draft revisions to Water Quality Policy 23 (WQP-23) until August 1, 2022. Please send all comments to Nathan Bradley, nathan.bradley@state.co.us. The division is proposing these revisions after the completion of a 2021-22 Water Quality Forum stakeholder process. Changes include incorporation of recent changes to Regulation 31. The revised draft can be found at this link. The original policy can be found here. A redline showing changes can be found here. Materials from the stakeholder process can be found here.

    For waters protected by antidegradation designations, the Water Quality Control Division can determine that allowing more degraded water quality is necessary to accommodate important economic or social development and then give a discharger a more lenient “alternative” antidegradation limit. This is also called an “Antidegradation Alternative Analysis.”  WQCD is seeking public comment on draft guidance for submitting an application for an alternative antidegradation limit. It can be found here. Please send comments to Christine Wehner by August 31, 2022 at christine.wehner@state.co.us. For more information on antidegradation, see "Additional Protections for Some Colorado Waters" page.
