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

Earlier this year, Greeley City Council adopted design criteria that requires certifications for commercial landscape installations. Since then, the demand for trained industry professionals has increased.

Greeley's Water and Sewer Board also supports the program.

“In Greeley and the West, we must grow more water-wise together,” said Water and Sewer Board Chairman Harold Evans. “Greeley Water is well-positioned for the future. We must ensure our residents have access to knowledgeable, certified and prepared professionals to support Greeley's values.”

Greeley Water Conservation sees this investment as a crucial step in ensuring proper maintenance of landscapes in the community. A well-installed, maintained and programmed irrigation system reduces water use and lowers customers' water bills.

Greeley Water Conservation recommends that residents choose landscape and irrigation companies with certified staff to maximize their water savings. Residents can find these companies at
