Stormwater

The Town of Superior is committed to managing a proactive stormwater management program of improving the quality of runoff that enters the storm sewer system before it is discharged into local streams. The program is regulated by the Clean Water Act under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and is administered by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Education:

Superior is part of the Keep it Clean Partnership, a regional stormwater management program, which combines resources and implements programs that help improve the quality of water that enters our streams and lakes as a result of runoff from precipitation and snow melt, while meeting the education requirements of the Stormwater Program. Learn about stormwater basics to become familiar with impacts that residents can have on the region's stormwater systems.

If you would like to get more involved with protecting our waters from stormwater pollution, visit the Keep it Clean Partnership website.

Report an Illicit Discharge:

It is illegal to discharge anything other than stormwater (rain and snow melt) into the storm drainage system via streets, gutters, inlets, or drainage ways. Prohibited items include trash, yard waste, lawn chemicals, cleaning products, pet waste, grease, oil, paint products, sediment, and other pollutants. Learn more about illegal dumping and discharges and how to help keep these items out of our waterways.

Some exceptions may apply. By reporting illegal dumping and discharges, Superior can detect and eliminate sources of pollution that are harmful to both people and the environment. To report illegal dumping or discharges, call 303-499-3675 or visit the Keep it Clean Partnership Report Pollution page.

Superior strives to incorporate a variety of strategies to ensure citizens and business owners have access to education materials. Visit the Keep it Clean Partnership to learn about how to prevent stormwater pollution from your business or home.
