SPLASH works together to provide educational outreach, opportunities for public participation, and staff training to increase awareness of each person's role in protecting water quality. A Memorandum of Understanding Cooperation Agreement (MOU), signed by SPLASH members outlines an understanding between governmental and quasi-governmental entities within Arapahoe County on the coordination efforts necessary to meet our Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit Measurable Goals. The Six (6) Management Programs where SPLASH members coordinate efforts include Education and Outreach; Public Participation and Involvement; Illicit Discharge, Detection and Elimination; Construction Best Management Practices (BMPs); Post-Construction BMPs; and Good Housekeeping/Pollution Prevention. SPLASH prepares an Annual Report for members detailing the years activities to meet Measurable Goals as a way to measure our effectiveness as a group, and to keep our focus on taking actions to positively affect water quality. SPLASH entities participate in a wide variety of education efforts, and in outreach events and activities as a group each year, including public meetings, special events, conferences, and festivals. Several SPLASH entities are located in the Cherry Creek watershed, and have additional requirements for stormwater controls to meet the standard for phosphorous and the cholorphyl-a goal established for the Cherry Creek Reservoir, located at Cherry Creek State Park. Events and education in the watershed are coordinated as well, with the assistance of the Cherry Creek Stewardship Partners. In addition, SPLASH members meet six times a year to coordinate efforts. SPLASH meetings are held the third Wednesday every other month, starting in January. The meetings are held at the Southeast Metro Stormwater Authority (SEMSWA) building, 76 Inverness Drive East, Englewood, at 9:30 am. Please contact Carrie at (303) 639-4507 for more information.
