Glendale Storm Water Information

Construction Site Stormwater 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 stormwater permit from the Colorado Department of Public Health (CDPHE). Both CDPHE and Glendale require the construction site to have a stormwater management plan. The stormwater management plan requirements are the same, with two exceptions: Glendale requires weekly self inspections of the construction site and the naming of an alternate SWMP Administrator.

Citizens can also help protect Cherry Creek by reporting any dirt on a road from a construction site entrance/exit, silt fence that has come down, unprotected storm drain inlets receiving dirty water from a construction site, and spills from a construction site. Review Glendale's ordinance Section 13.30 for information on new construction sites. To report a concern, click on the Report a Concern tab on this website or call Public Works at 303-639-4500.

Stormwater Requirements for Construction Site Projects in Glendale  -- This brochure describes the required elements of a stormwater management plan.

Stormwater Management Plan Checklist -- All construction sites disturbing one acre or more (or are part of a larger common plan of development) need to develop and submit a stormwater management plan before receiving a permit. This is Glendale's checklist for each element required in a stormwater management plan.

Sample Self Inspection form -- All active construction sites disturbing 1 acre or more (or are part of a larger common plan of development) need to conduct and document self inspections once a week. This form can be used to document the self inspections.

Glendale Inspection Form -- A City inspector will periodically inspect all construction sites disturbing one acre or more (or are part of a larger common plan of development) using an inspection form.

Enforcement Standard Operating Procedure -- This is the standard operating procedure for stomwater-related violations.

Post Construction Stormwater Runoff Control:

Glendale's ordinance Section 13.30 also requires construction sites disturbing one acre or more, or less than one acre but part of a larger common plan of development, to design, construct, install, and maintain permanent best management practices to control stormwater pollution. Common permanent best management practices include grassed swales, sediment basins, underground vaults, and storm drain inserts. The owner must inspect the permanent best management practice at least twice a year. Glendale staff will inspect the best management practice once a year.

Post Construction Fact Sheet -- This Fact Sheet guides developers in the planning and design of post construction BMPs in the City of Glendale. This Fact Sheet applies to projects occurring in the City of Glendale or projects constructed by the City of Glendale.

Municipal Operations

Glendale staff are trained to identify and control stormwater pollution from municipal activities. Glendale has developed a Program for Management of Municipal Stormwater, which guides Glendale staff in conducting their daily duties while preventing stormwater pollution. For more information on Glendale's stormwater program or to report an illegal discharge or stormwater pollution from a construction site, please contact Public Works at 303-639-4500 or email
