Greeley Has Normal Watering Restrictions in 2012

Greeley’s Water & Sewer Board met yesterday afternoon to discuss water supply and drought. The Water Board declared 2012 to be an adequate water year, due to the amount of water storage Greeley has in its reservoirs. Greeley will have its regular, three day per week, watering restrictions this year.


Greeley’s mandatory watering restrictions have been in effect since 1907. In addition to being a water conservation measure, water restrictions flatten peak summer demand. Expensive system capacity upgrades can be delayed by spreading out water demand through watering restrictions. All Greeley water customers must follow the schedule below.

At this time of year, only one day per week watering is suggested.
