Colorado Springs is hoping to develop a sustainable stormwater plan and is contemplating revisions of the current plan. Here’s a report from Chris Woodka writing for The Pueblo Chieftain. From the article:
Colorado Springs wants to develop strategies that are sustainable and cost-effective. Many of the current policies and practices were developed 20 years ago, although water quality criteria were updated in 2002. Another goal of the process is to create an open, responsive process that allows more participation in developing the standards, Bare said. “We’re really just getting started at this point,” Bare said, adding that Manitou Springs is already a partner in the project, while Fountain and Pueblo have been approached. A consultant has been hired for $250,000 to complete the study, which is expected to take 18 months to complete. A Web site has been set up to serve as an introduction to the project, Bare said.
