Southeast Metro Stormwater Authority (SEMSWA) will make public records available for inspection in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Colorado Open Records Act, Colorado Revised Statutes §24-72-201, et seq.

All requests for public records must be made in writing and must include the following:
- Requestor’s full name, address, email address and telephone number
- As detailed a description of the records requested as is reasonably possible
- A statement that the request is made pursuant to the provisions of the Colorado Open Records Act, Colorado Revised Statutes §24-72-201, et seq.
Written requests must be delivered in person, by mail or by email to email@example.com.

After the first hour, a $30/hour charge will be assessed for researching files for requested information, manipulation of data to generate a record in a form not used by SEMSWA, or redaction of documents containingconfidential information. Fees also apply for copies of public records. If SEMSWA estimates the cost to comply with the request including the making of copies will exceed $30.00, the requestor may be required by the custodian to deposit that estimate with SEMSWA prior to fulfillment of the request by SEMSWA.
