This meeting is an opportunity for residents, business owners, employees, frequent visitors and other stakeholders in our watershed to get answers and contribute to the conversation about our local water quality. Holly Brown of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will present an introduction to the agency’s update to the Total Maximum Daily Load calculation for our watershed. The TMDL is the maximum amount of a pollutant that a waterbody can receive and still meet water quality standards. Developing a TMDL is one way for a waterbody to be removed from the 303(d) list, a designation indicating cleanup work is required to meet standards. This is just the beginning of the process and when calculations are available in early 2018, you will be invited back to provide comments on the data and findings.
