Steering Committee and Other Participants

Development of the Standley Lake/Clear Creek Watershed Source Water Protection Plan (SWPP) was a collaborative effort involving stakeholders throughout the Clear Creek Watershed. The broad representation on the Steering Committee helped to promote collaboration and  a working relationship throughout the process.

The Steering Committee worked to identify threats to the drinking water supply for the cities of Westminster, Northglenn and Thornton in Colorado. They collaborated to develop a plan to manage nutrient loading within Standley Lake’s source watershed, helping ensure the quality of the water coming out of more than 260,000 household taps.
The success of this Source Water Protection Plan depends on the contributions of a knowledgeable, engaged steering committee. The SWPP participants are indebted to the following individuals and their associated organizations for the many hours they contributed to developing and maintaining the SWPP.
