The meeting will include a discussion on the availability of practical remedies to these problems.The hearing will be held in the Sabin Room of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, 4300 Cherry Creek Dr. South, Denver. “The commission holds meetings on specific water quality topics throughout the year. This hearing is set aside annually as an opportunity for commission members to hear about any water quality issues of concern to the public,” said Paul Frohardt, commission administrator. “This is an important opportunity for the commission to hear from the public at large, rather than just the regulated businesses, environmental groups, lawyers and consultants who normally participate in commission proceedings.” Interested persons are encouraged to submit written comments to the commission at or prior to the hearing, or to provide verbal comments at the hearing.Written comments should be submitted to Paul Frohardt, administrator, Colorado Water Quality Commission, 4300 Cherry Creek Dr. South, Denver, 80246.
