Colorado Springs Utilities blatantly did not meet the requirements to receive approval of the permit. Judge Reyes reviewed the law and reviewed the permit listen to the testimony and decided that the Colorado Water Quality Control Division's approval of the 401 permit which read similar to "Though Colorado Springs Utilities has not met the requirements for approval of the 401 permit, we believe in our hearts that they will do the right thing" The judge decided that the feeling in your heart isn't the same as meeting the requirements. Judge Reyes was right I am not sure what the Colorado Court of Appeals was looking at, Evidently the feeling in the heart of a branch of government is better than the law.
