These eight 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. As of May 2016, Broomfield does not have any mandatory watering restrictions in place.
Check with Broomfield Public Works for any additional lawn watering rules.
If the next few months are hot and dry, new turf that was installed last fall 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 if conditions do turn hot and dry.
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 five 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.
Even small leaks in your home's water system can add up. Check out this handy guide to detecting leaks.
The City/County has also created a Water Conservation Hotline. The Hotline has up-to-date information and a voice mailbox that you can leave any questions you might have and/or any requests for additional information. The HOTLINE NUMBER IS 303.438.6210.
