UPDATE: Water restrictions have been lifted in Fort Collins as of June 1, 2013. Read more on the city website...

Monday, March 11, 2013

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.

Testimonials

  • "We have Bednarik Sprinklers do our fall blowouts every year, and they do a great job.  Nate always shows up promptly, and is efficient and professional.  Our sprinkler system is a DIY job by one of the previous owners, so is set up a little odd--but Nate has no problems with it.  He was able to advise us about when to have our backflow preventer installed (as our system didn't have one), and did the installation himself for a very reasonable price.  Highly recommended!" --Catherine D. / Fort Collins, CO (Source: Google Reviews)
