The City of Greeley has a rate structure that uses water budgets for all single-family residential accounts.
What Exactly Is a Water Budget?
It’s the amount of water you need during any particular billing period, based on your family size, on the irrigable (area where plants can grow) square footage of your yard, and real-time weather conditions. This program is an accurate and equitable way of addressing everyone’s water needs.

Water Budgets are Changing
Since 2017, water budgets have helped Greeley residents save millions of gallons of water.
Starting in January 2020, the indoor portion of your water budget will change from 55 gallons per person per day to 45 to reflect more accurately how our community uses water. The outdoor proportion will also be slightly decreased to reflect moderate (as opposed to high) water use on lawns. These changes preserve Greeley’s water supply without a significant difference to your water bill.
