Statutory Authority Section 25-8-202(1)(a), (b) and (2); 25-8-203; 25-8-204; and 25-8-402, C.R.S.
Description of Subjects/Issues The purpose of this hearing is to correct several errors in the current regulation which do not reflect the commission's intended decisions from recent hearings. The first correction is to the discharger specific variance for selenium on Upper South Platte segment 16i. The second correction is the deletion of an arsenic temporary modification from Clear Creek segment 14a and an addition of an arsenic temporary modification to Clear Creek segment 14b. The third correction is to remove the use protected designation from Big Thompson River segment 2 and restore the reviewable designation.
Purpose/Objective of Rule These regulations establish classification and numeric standards for the South Platte River, the Laramie River, the Republican River and the Smoky Hill River, including all tributaries and standing bodies of water as indicated in section 38.6. The classifications identify the actual beneficial uses of the water. The numeric standards are assigned to determine the allowable concentrations of various parameters. Discharge permits will be issued by the Water Quality Control Division to comply with basic, narrative, and numeric standards and control regulations so that all discharges to waters of the state protect the classified uses. (See section 31.14). It is intended that these and all other stream classifications and numeric standards be used in conjunction with and be an integral part of Regulation 31.0 - BASIC STANDARDS AND METHODOLOGIES FOR SURFACE WATER.
