DENVER CO2 REQUIREMENTS DELAYED UNTIL JULY 1ST

New requirements on businesses operating CO2 systems in Denver have been delayed until July 1, 2018. Businesses in Denver with CO2 or inert gas (nitrogen) systems that have 100 lbs. or more, or any amount below ground level, are required to have permitted alarms. These requirements were voted on in 2015 by the Denver City Council with an original implementation date of January 1, 2018. Because many businesses in Denver didn’t know of the requirements, the Denver Fire Department pushed back the implementation date. If you have questions about the requirements, click here or contact Nick Hoover at 303-830-2972.

 

+ Cities outside of Denver, pay attention to this issue. We’ve heard talk of other communities looking to implement their own CO2 regulations. Some with even stricter guidelines than Denver’s. We are monitoring discussions in Colorado Springs at the moment. If you hear of discussions in other areas of the state, contact Nick Hoover immediately so we can be at the table when negotiating a reasonable solution.
