The VWPWD is now under the oversight of the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE).
CDPHE has provided the VWPWD a MONITORING PLAN and SCHEDULE and we are now required to perform a drinking water suite of tests required by the EPA and CDPHE.
Results of water quality tests and other information from CDPHE can be found by following the link below.
CDPHE will perform an onsite inspection of the system – it will be the initial ‘Sanitary Survey.’
CONSUMER CONFIDENCE REPORT (CCR) will be required to disclose to the public details of our water quality. It will include specific analytical testing define in the Monitoring and which is required by CO drinking water quality standards. It will include any deficiencies noted in the Sanitary Survey. The Sanitary survey and the CCR will also addresses the public health risks related to:
cross connection control and the requirement for a Backflow Prevention Program.
Other specific water quality issues (hardness etc.)
The CCR is also the vehicle used to address specific concerns and best management practices for customers.
