Stormwater

Fountain Creek and Arkansas RiverThe campus of Colorado State University-Pueblo is located in the northeast portion of the City of Pueblo and incorporates many varied activities.  The University is situated on top of one of the high points in Pueblo, Colorado.  Storm water runoff from the University makes its way into either the Fountain Creek drainage or several large arroyos which all eventually empty into the Arkansas River.  What we do here on campus has the ability to affect water quality downstream of us.  Many of our day to day operations put us at risk of contaminating storm water.  It is important that we all work together to limit our impact on stormwater.  Colorado State University-Pueblo is in the process of implementing standard practices that will help us limit our impact and we invite the whole community to join us in this effort.  Below are resources available to you to help you along the way!

"After the Storm" is a very informative flier put together by EPA to help explain the issue and ways you can help.  Take a look at it: After The Storm
