Water Conservation

Our Water Conservation program is one of the largest and most successful in Colorado. Between 1990 and 2007, universal metering and other conservation programs dropped water demand by more than 20 percent in Greeley. The Conservation Plan estimates an additional eight percent reduction in water use over the next 20 years.

The Greeley Green Gardening Fair is a new event, coming on May 5.  Part of the fair is a composter and rain barrel sale.  Both items must be purchased beforehand for pick up at the event. The Greeley Water Conservation program is providing discounts for City of Greeley Water customers.

Rain Barrel Sale
Colorado Rain Catcher barrels are available for $50 to the first 200 Greeley Water Customers who order. The regular price of the rain barrels is $75. These do-it-yourself barrels are 55 gallons and come with all the hardware for easy installation.  The kit also comes with instructions, and there will be a hands-on demonstration on the day of the event. There is a limit of 2 barrels per household. A coupon code for the rain barrels will be included in water bills and on WaterSmart. Please contact conserve@greeleygov.com or call 970-350-9210 if you have not received the code and would like to purchase.

“Since 2016, rain barrel use is now legal in Colorado. Many of our residents have shown interest in installing a rain barrel and this program makes it easy,” says Ruth Quade, City of Greeley Water Conservation Coordinator.

Compost Bin Sale
Earth Machine composters are sold at $25 to the first 200 City of Greeley Water customers who purchase. The regular sale price is still discounted at $50 per bin. The sale also includes other compost items and accessories. Adding compost to your soil improves its health and makes high-quality soil, healthy plants, can reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improve water quality and protect the environment. It also keeps a food and yard waste out of the landfill.

“Front Range soils lack organic matter and benefit from the addition of compost. Up to a 30 percent savings on water can be realized with the addition of compost. Healthy soil makes healthy plants. It is the ultimate recycling,” Quade said.

To purchase your compost or rain barrel, visit greeleygov.com/wc for links to both online sales. Please call 970-350-9210 for additional information.
