DWR Report

The number of well permit applications from January 1 through March 31 are summarized below. The number of total permit applications in 2017 are slightly behind 2016, however the number of permits issued in Q1 2017 is ahead of Q1 2016 by approximately 16%.

Well Inspection Program

By a letter dated February 10, 2017, the CWWCA requested that the Colorado State Auditor conduct a performance and financial audit of the water well inspection program. The CWWCA applauds the DWR’s excellent work on the water well inspection program, but is concerned that the program is not adequately staffed or funded.

Also discussed was the possibility to add a well inspection report checklist to our list of to do’s which could be used as a pick list for home owners and realtors who want a well checked before or after the sale of property. Discussion was around the amount of varying request and the customer seldom knows what they want or need. The list would let them know what to ask for.

Future Topics
