I’ve always wondered why we don’t see any of these signs around Ferril Lake, Duck Lake, or Grasmere Lake where “recycled water” is currently in use. Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Reg. 84 – Reclaimed Water Control Regulation, requires signs to be posted and care to be taken in the use of recycled water.
Thanks to Doug Woods, Director of Park Operations, I now know. In response to my recent email, he says:
“Some factors to consider in why the City Ditch water is not classified as recycled water are:
-The City Ditch is classified as Waters of the State and there are specific water quality criteria associated with the permit to allow supply of water to the ditch. Denver Water operates a dechlorination facility at the start of City Ditch.
-Once water enters the City Ditch, Denver Water no longer has any control over the quality of water since there are numerous external influences, such as storm sewer inlets.
-The compliance point for the permit that Denver Water must satisfy is at the start of the City Ditch once the water leaves the dechlorination facility. Denver Water has never violated this permit.”
