A Celebration of Local History
As part of the City's 10th anniversary year, we're digging deep into Douglas County history to learn more about the people, places and events that helped shape Castle Pines. You can follow along throughout the entire month of March by "liking" us on Facebook, where we'll be sharing little-know facts about the area long before Castle Pines became the community you see today.

Explore the Games - Should Denver Host the Winter Olympics?

Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, with the support of Colorado Gov.

Stormwater Compliance for Construction Sites

Soil erosion and sedimentation are natural processes that affect all landscapes. However, these processes occur at an accelerated rate on construction sites due to activities that disturb the soil and vegetation. This results in the discharge of sediment into waterways and is considered a pollutant under the Clean Water Act. The most common cause of erosion is from stormwater runoff, therefore the management and regulation of stormwater runoff during construction activities is critical to the protection of Colorado's water resources.

Stormwater runoff controls at construction sites are mandated by the Clean Water Act. In Colorado, the EPA has delegated authority to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). CDPHE issues stormwater discharge permits associated with construction activities under the Colorado Discharge Permit System (CDPS). The City of Castle Pines issues a similar permit called a Grading, Erosion, and Sediment Control (GESC) Permit to control pollutants from construction sites. The ultimate objective of these practices are to ensure the protection of Colorado's waterways from construction-related pollution.
