Conference Attendees

CPOW is requesting that if you are a practitioner that routinely conducts business with sand/gravel pits in your area that you inquire if they could provide you a gradation of their C33 sand media (ie: concrete sand). This is the material that would typicllay be used as filter media for an onsite wastewater treatment system "rip and replace", sand filter, or mound system. CDPHE is attempting to gather as many of these gradations to utilize in the decision making process for revisions to Regulation 43. CPOW will provide CDPHE with the gradations brought to the conference. You can also email electronic copies of gradations to Chuck Cousino at chuck.cousino@state.co.us.

CPOW Silent Auction

CPOW will be awarding two scholarships again this year. This is the first year CPOW will be hosting a silent auction to raise money for next year's scholarship. The silent auction will be held Thursday January 21st during the conference and will conclude during the happy hour.
