The Chery Creek Basin Authority (CCBWQA) was created by statutory enactment as a quasi-municipal corporation and political subdivision of the state, and is designated as a management agency for the upper Cherry Creek basin under the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG’s) Clean Water Plan. Operating under a Control Regulation, the Basin Authority has public education and outreach activities that are mandated under that control regulation. As part of satisfying the Control Regulation, the Basin Authority requested and was awarded an EPA Section 319 grant to focus on BMP education within the Cherry Creek basin. This BMP education effort offers a comprehensive approach in non-point source education by addressing both new construction and existing development and providing new tools and information.
In addition, the Basin Authority has just recently completed the 2003 Watershed Plan that has very specific recommendations for an education outreach program, including developing a comprehensive public involvement plan, coordinating with regulatory efforts in the basin, collaborating for funding opportunities and participating in habitat restoration and protection programs.
