The Colorado Stormwater Council (CSC) is an organization for local governments who own a storm drainage system and are required to have a municipal permit (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) for the discharge from those systems to state waters. In the State of Colorado, the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment (CDPHE) is responsible for regulating the discharge of stormwater by issuing discharge permits through the Colorado Discharge Permit System.
The CSC acts as a forum for municipalities and municipal permit holders which
Enables exchange of technical information regarding stormwater regulations and compliance with permits.
Serves as a voice for its members during regulatory procedures, meetings and hearings.
Educates members on all aspects of stormwater: legislation, permitting, technology, resources, program management, and more.
Aids in the development and implementation of stormwater programs at local and regional levels.
