Environmental Planning


Water Quality

The Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments is required under federal and state statutes to develop a Water Quality Management Plan, commonly called a 208 Plan, that recommends future policies and technical strategies for each of the five watersheds within the Pikes Peak region – El Paso, Teller, and Park counties. The 208 Plan recognizes each watershed is uniquely different and water quality problems can be both diffuse and site-specific.

Air Quality

PPACG is the lead air-quality planning agency for the Colorado Springs metropolitan area which includes most of El Paso County and a portion of Teller County, primarily within Woodland Park. PPACG is charged with ensuring the region remains in compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards, developing plans to improve air quality, and reviewing any legal or regulatory changes to evaluate potential impacts to the region.
