Permitting and enforcing individual sewage disposal systems, and addressing incidents that involve our waterways, are the two main ways Public and Environmental Health work to preserve water quallity. In addition, we work closely with the following organization to ensure the protection of our precious water resources: the Upper Clear Creek Watershed Association, the Upper Bear Creek Watershed Association, the Clear Creek County Site Development, and the Clear Creek Community Site Development.

For Private Wells permitting or or other issues, please contact the Colorado Divsion of Water Resources at 303-866-3581.

It is the responsibility of each homeowner to assure a safe supply of water from their well.  Well water can contain both naturally-occuring and otherwise occurring contaminants. We can provide information and guidance as to how to keep wells free from harmful contaminants.

For additional water quality questions beyond well or septic tank issues, please see the A-Z index of information at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, or check out these websites:

To Report a Water Quality Incident within Clear Creek County, contact the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Environmental Release and Incident Reporting Line at 1-877-518-5608.


Maintaining clean air is essential for healthy living.  Because we spend the majority of our time indoors, it is crucial that we recognize the importance of our indoor air quality. Indoor air quality concerns include mold and radon as well as secondhand smoke hazards from tobacco use inside homes and automobiles.  For mold and radon hazards, we recommend that homeowners contract with a licensed professional.
