Stormwater Management Program and Education

The Colorado Water Quality Control Division regulates stormwater pollution by issuing permits for stormwater discharges from industry, construction sites, and some government entities ("municipalities") located in urban areas that are responsible for stormwater drainage. The Cheyenne Mountain School District is considered one such municipality and has been issued a permit for stormwater drainage from the Cheyenne Mountain High School campus.

This permit requires: (1) public education and outreach on stormwater impacts, (2) public involvement and participation, (3) illicit discharge detection and elimination, (4) construction site stormwater runoff control, (5) post-construction stormwater management in new development and redevelopment, and (6) pollution prevention and good housekeeping for municipal operations. Regulations require the use of best management practices to reduce or eliminate sources of stormwater pollution.

For additional information on the storm water regulations, contact the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Stormwater Program at (303) 692-3517 or at cdphe.wqstorm@state.co.us

Reporting Procedures

The need to protect our environment has resulted in a number of control laws, regulations, and programs. These programs recommend where and how to use best management practices to keep runoff from becoming polluted. The Cheyenne Mountain School District maintains one such program to reduce stormwater runoff pollution.

If you witness illegal dumping of used oil or other illicit dumping on school grounds, please report it by calling (719) 475-6100.


Contact Information

The Cheyenne Mountain School District's contact person for stormwater management issues is Dr. Walt Cooper, Superintendent, (719) 475-6100.
