Water Restrictions

There are currently not any local water restrictions.

From time to time, water restrictions are necessary due to the low reserves in river basins and reservoirs, as wells as severe state-wide drought conditions. Northern Colorado Water Conservation District (NCWCD) is the agency responsible for regulating our city’s water supply. The agency annually establishes a water quota of the Colorado Big Thompson (C-BT) water supply.

 Tips for Winter Water Conservation- Don’t Let Cold Weather Catch You Unprepared!
Every winter, many homeowners face the expense and inconvenience of frozen water pipes. But you can cross that off your list of winter worries by taking a few simple precautions:

  • Disconnect and drain outdoor hoses. Detaching a hose allows water to drain from the faucet. Otherwise, a single, hard overnight freeze can burst either the faucet or the pipe it’s connected to.
  • Insulate pipes or faucets in unheated areas. If you have pipelines in the attic, an unheated garage or cold crawl space under the house, wrap the water pipes before temperatures plummet. Hardware or building supply stores will have good pipe wrapping materials available.
  • Seal off access doors, air vents and cracks. Winter winds whistling through overlooked openings can quickly freeze exposed water pipes.
  • Find the master shutoff. It is where the water line comes out of the meter box at the street. If a pipe bursts anywhere in the house – kitchen, bath, basement or crawl space – this valve turns it off. So find it now. Be sure everyone in the family knows where it is and what it does.
