CDPHE Regulation 43 Update Input Requested

Over the last 16 months the Division has been involved in conducting meetings and obtaining input from over 100 stakeholders relative to the proposed revisions to Regulation 43; On-site Wastewater Treatment System Regulation. The purpose of this revision was stated in the initial kick-off meeting on August of 2015:

“The general intent of the revision is for minor modifications that will provide clarity and address any conflicts within the regulation. The goal will be to maintain the focus of the regulations on wastewater treatment and to continue to align them with accepted industry standards.”

On November 22, 2016 the Division submitted a final draft to the Water Quality Control Commission for review and adoption. Subsequent to their December meeting the Commission provided the "Notice of Public Rulemaking Hearing before the Water Quality Control Commission". This notice, and the proposed revised regulation, can be found on the Commission's web page, or can be directly accessed by clicking on the link below from the "WQCC Rulemaking Hearings" page:
