You or your business may qualify for rebates and/or a water conservation audit if you receive treated water from the City and County of Broomfield! Making your home or business more water-efficient is good for the environment, may reduce your water and sewer bill, and saves energy, too.
As the summer irrigation season comes to an end, it is recommended that residents modify watering schedules to reflect the seasonal changes of fall and winter. The shorter days and cooler temperatures mean your lawn and garden will need watering less frequently and for shorter periods of time. Gradually reducing your watering over the next several weeks will "harden off" your plants for winter's cold. Outside watering is not recommended after October 31, except trees and shrubs as necessary.
These general water conservation tips can help you and your city conserve water, especially during dry years. These best practices are supported by the cities within Boulder and Broomfield counties. Always check with your water supplier for any additional lawn watering rules or any drought-related restrictions.
Check with your water supplier for any additional lawn watering rules.
New turf may need some irrigation until roots are established. All of Broomfield's customers are encouraged to water trees and shrubs as needed. Trees and shrubs in City and County parks will also be watered as needed. See more information about winter tree watering to maintain their health.
The request at this time is strictly for voluntary compliance. As always, Broomfield will be enforcing its Misuse of Treated Water Ordinance (excess application of water that results in a flow exceeding 5 gallons per minute leaving the property).
Any other water conservation measures that you can implement will be appreciated. Remember that a little effort and a little common sense will make a big difference in conserving this most valuable resource.
