WATERING SHOULDN'T HURT
Be Water Smart
What is our current drought condition? Drought is no stranger to Western Colorado. It’s a challenge that our local leaders are faced with year after year; even in years where our watersheds see an above average snowpack level. Drought conditions vary from month to month and watershed to watershed.
Going beyond turning the water off when you brush your teeth! Drought management focuses on efficiently managing our water resources. Learn how you can do your part to be responsible stewards of our water both indoor and outdoor while protecting the high quality water that we are so proud of in Western Colorado.
The “Join The Flock” campaign is designed to create unification within the community by encouraging consumers to adopt efficient use of our limited water resources. “Flo” the pink flamingo should be proudly placed in your yard to demonstrate to your friends and neighbors that you are committed to water conservation.
