Wastewater Regulation Violations

Desired Result: Zero

Analysis of Performance

Note: The graph above is reflective of having very few violations during the reporting period. Since no violations is the target, there is very little data displayed on the graph.

The Water Reclamation and Biosolids Division was 100% compliant with all regulatory agencies for Q4 2014. The Water Reclamation and Biosolids Division has a goal of achieving 100% compliance with all regulatory agencies to ensure the environmental and public health of the community.

Metric Definition

The compliance rate for a wastewater treatment facility is based on meeting all applicable EPA and state regulations that protect public health and the environment.

Why Is This Important?

Compliance indicates adequate wastewater treatment is occurring to protect both the public and environmental health of our community and the nation's waterways.

City Organization Impact on Performance

High - The City has direct operational control of the wastewater treatment facilities, however the quality of the wastewater flowing into the facilities impacts the City's ability to meet regulatory requirements.

Benchmark Information

This metric contains no benchmark data because Fort Collins’ goal of zero violations is reflective of the City’s own commitment to compliance and is not influenced by comparisons to the compliance of other cities. Given the binary nature of this metric, benchmarks would add no value to the data.
