Water Conservation

The City of Greeley is proud to have a long history of water stewardship here in northern Colorado. Since 1907, we’ve provided safe, high-quality water supplies for our residents while ensuring a reliable supply for the future. One of the many ways we’re safeguarding your water supply is through water conservation. In fact, Greeley offers one of the most robust water conservation programs in Colorado.

With just over 13 inches of rainfall per year, Greeley is considered a semi-arid climate. This means local water supplies are scarce and must be used very wisely. To help customers save water indoors as well as outdoors, Greeley provides a wide range of water conservation programs and services that benefit a variety of water users.

Water Efficiency Plan

The City of Greeley’s Water Efficiency Plan is a roadmap of strategic objectives and water conservation programs to ensure future water supplies. The Water Efficiency Plan was approved by the Water and Sewer Board, Planning Commission and City Council in 2022. The main objectives of the plan are to maximize widespread efficiency in all indoor water use, set goals for more resilient landscapes, and educate customers on water use goals. It will provide direction on how to advance water conservation efforts and build citywide capacity to:

  • Create efficiencies and consistencies among policies, plans, projects, and programs
  • Maximize cost-saving opportunities
  • Create goals with clear measurements for success

Greeley Mayor John Gates joins mayors in a national competition to see which community generates the most pledges toward being water smart and reducing pollution. The “Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation,” April 1-30, focuses on making minor changes to prevent water waste, reduce pollution, and save energy.

“Our forefathers knew how important water is to Greeley, and so should we,” said Mayor Gates, who will read a water conservation proclamation at the April 4 Greeley City Council meeting. “We owe it to our community and future city residents to be smart with water use.”

Go to and choose from several water-saving practices to adopt, like:

  • Repair leaking faucets, pipes, and toilets
  • Wash full loads of laundry and dishes
  • Turn off sprinklers when it rains

“Water conservation shouldn’t be limited to one month per year,” Gates said. “All we have to do is pledge to make a few small changes in our daily lives to conserve water. If we do that, we will all be winners.”

Residents who take the water pledge can win $3,000 for home utility payments. In addition, participants can receive a separate prize for a $500 home improvement shopping spree and daily prizes.

The Mayor’s Challenge is an excellent opportunity for teachers to introduce water conservation practices in their classrooms. K-12 teachers can take the pledge on behalf of their students and receive prizes if their city wins. Students can take the pledge at and help improve the city’s ranking.

Take the pledge at anytime in April. Check back to see how your pledge helps Greeley compete against other communities with similar populations.
