The majority of public water systems in Colorado are classified as non-community groundwater (NCGW) systems. To assist with conducting sanitary surveys at the NCGW systems, the Division has partnered with various local health departments throughout Colorado.
· Response to the NCGW Sanitary Survey Letter: The Local Health Department Inspector or a Division Inspector will document the sanitary survey findings in a letter sent out approximately 30 days after the sanitary survey. According to Article 11 of the CPDWRs the system has 45 days from the sanitary survey letter to respond in writing to any deficiencies. The system has 120 days to address any deficiencies unless the system has an approved Division correction action plan to address any deficiencies.
