The City of Pueblo has received our new Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) that allows us to discharge our stormwater into waters of the State. We have been operating with our current permit that was issued in March of 2008. CDPHE has issued the new MS4 permit but it will not become effective until July 1, 2016. Attached here is the permit and two fact sheets for the public’s review. The permit documents can also be downloaded at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/wq-final-permit-actions.
