What Makes Us Unique?

The Cherry Creek Basin Water Quality Authority was formed by Statute and given powers and authorities unique to our basin, such as the ability to establish rates, tolls, fees, and charges for CCBWQA’s facilities and programs. No other watershed in the state has a statute specifically designed to protect its reservoir. Although our reservoir is also subject to the Cherry Creek Reservoir Control Regulation 72 (as are many other Colorado reservoirs with similar control regulations), it is the additional powers in our Statute that sets us apart.
