Wastewater Permit Regulation Information

NOTICE The City of Creede recently received a new wastewater discharge permit from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment that imposes effluent limits not controllable by our current wastewater treatment practices., The City of Creede is requesting an adjudicatory hearing with the CDPHE requesting an administrative stay on the discharge permit., The administrative stay will allow the town time to collect data to contest the new regulations. System users should be aware that, despite the City’s efforts, the new wastewater permit is very likely to go into effect, resulting in increased costs for our system users, significant capital improvements to our treatment plant, increased staffing costs, and increased operation and maintenance costs. Please take the time to review the wastewater permit and information on its implications below., The City of Creede will make additional information pertaining to permit changes public as it becomes available.,
