C.R.S. Section 37-3-106
Regulations to protect works


Where necessary, in order to secure the best results from the execution and operation of the plans of the district or to prevent damage to the district by the deterioration or misuse or by the pollution of the waters of any watercourse therein, the board of directors may make regulations for and may prescribe the manner of building bridges, roads, fences, or other works in, into, along, or across any channel, reservoir, or other construction; and may prescribe the manner in which ditches or other works shall be adjusted to or connected with the works of the district or any watercourse therein; and, when not in conflict with the rules of the water quality control commission, may prescribe the manner in which the watercourses of the district may be used for sewer outlets or for disposal of waste.


The construction of any works in a manner harmful to the district or to any watercourse therein, and in a manner contrary to that specified by the board of directors, is a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars. The directors have authority to enforce by mandamus or other legal proceedings all necessary regulations made by them and authorized by articles 1 to 8 of this title and may remove any harmful construction or may close any opening improperly made. Any person, corporation, or municipality willfully failing to comply with such regulations is liable for all damage caused by such failure and for the cost of renewing any construction damaged or destroyed.
