Resources for researching U.S. Environmental Law in the library and online

Colorado Resources

The State of Colorado has enacted regulations in a variety of environmental areas. The official code of regulations is organized by department/agency at the CO Secretary of State’s website, and this is a good place to start researching state regulations. For more help researching Colorado regulations, please see the Locating Colorado Regulations guide.

The Colorado Department of Natural Resources website has information on Colorado regulations, scientific information about natural resources in Colorado, links to the various environmental boards and commissions, and a variety of other information that will be of interest to both Colorado practitioners and those interested in environmental issues in Colorado.

Please see the Colorado Administrative Law guide for more information on resources and research methods for locating Colorado regulations, administrative law decisions, and attorney general opinions. See the Colorado Statutory Research guide for information about finding Colorado statutes.

City/Municipal Resources

Many cities and municipalities enact their own environmental statutes, from bans on littering to wastewater permitting. Often, the best place to start is on the city’s or municipality’s website.
