Drought Resources - Residential and Commercial
Be Good Stewards of Water Resources
Water distribution is often a complex undertaking, with miles of pipes, canals and water treatment facilities designed to ensure residents have the cleanest drinking water possible. In Colorado, this process is especially challenging, with about 85 percent of the state’s population living on the East Slope, and 80 percent of Colorado’s water originating west of the Continental Divide. Even if your local area is not experiencing dry weather conditions, drought in other regions can have ripple effects throughout the state.
Due to the interconnected nature of Colorado’s water resources, good stewardship of water is universally needed to ensure adequate supplies for all. Though this goal may seem daunting, the links below can help Colorado residents and businesses efficiently manage water during times of both drought and plentiful water supplies. Sound water efficiency practices not only saves water and money, but can also help preempt the need for significant watering restrictions in times of drought.
