Water Quality Fee Setting Rule

#FFFFFF

The Water Quality Control Division is responsible for ensuring that Colorado's drinking water is safe and the state’s rivers, lakes, and groundwater are protected. The division is mainly supported by federal funds, cash fees, and General Funds. The fees were set in statute, and federal funding has remained flat through the years making it difficult to achieve long-term fiscal sustainability and provide a higher level of customer service. To rectify this, the Colorado legislature passed legislation in 2023 to remove the fees from statute and instead directs the Water Quality Control Commission to set fees in regulation. Moving forward, the division is beginning a new stakeholder process to prepare for the upcoming rulemaking on setting fees.
