Permits
Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control

All construction projects disturbing one acre or more, or less than one acre but part of a larger common plan of development, must obtain a storm water permit from the Colorado Department of Public Health (CDPHE). Both CDPHE and Glendale require the construction site to have a Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP). The storm water management plan requirements are the same, with two exceptions: Glendale requires weekly self inspections of the construction site and an alternate SWMP Administrator be named.

What Citizens Can Do

Citizens can also help protect Cherry Creek by reporting any dirt on a road from a construction site entrance/exit, collapsed silt fence, unprotected storm drain inlets receiving dirty water from a construction site, and spills from a construction site. Please review Glendale's ordinance for new construction sites. To report a concern, fill out our online report or call Public Works at 303-639-4500.
