COVID-19 Impact
In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is doing its part through social distancing in the workplace. As of April 1, 2020, most of DNR's and subsequently DRMS' employees will work from home and main office buildings will be closed to the public. However, DRMS will remain open for business through phone or email to serve the people of Colorado. Please be patient and flexible during this unprecedented circumstance, and know that we will respond to customers as soon as possible. Click here for more information on building status.
