Fort Collins to Restrict Water Usage Starting in April

Because of the ongoing drought, the City of Fort Collins announced today that they will be implementing Response Level 1 water restrictions starting April 1, 2013. Their hope is that by enabling lower restrictions early in the year, it will help avoid the need for higher restrictions later in the summer.

What do the Fort Collins Water restrictions mean to you?

 

Lawn watering will only be allowed two days per week:

  • Even residential streets: Thursday and Sunday
  • Odd residential streets: Wednesday and Saturday
  • Commercial, multi-family and HOA’s: Tuesday and Friday

Note: Watering other vegetation on your property, such as flowers, trees, shrubs and vegetable gardens, will not be restricted.

Permits and Violations

 

 

The City of Fort Collins  website indicates that first time violations will receive written warnings and information about the new water restrictions. After that violates are subject to a minimum fine of $50, up to a max of $1,000.

They will also be offering special permits to allow for exceptions. Permits must be requested from the city and require property owners to post a sign visible from the street with the permit details.
