Rulemaking hearing
The Colorado General Assembly passed legislation (HB17-1306) to establish a lead testing program to assist public schools with conducting lead testing within the school’s drinking water system. As a result, we are seeking stakeholder feedback and input for a lead testing in public schools grant program. Stakeholder input will be incorporated into a proposal for the Water Quality Control Commission. The commission will conduct a rulemaking hearing on November 13, 2017 to consider amendments to the existing rules of the Water Quality Improvement Fund (Regulation 55). The amendments to Regulation 55 will establish criteria for the award of grants to complete lead testing.
