Denver Water Summer Watering Rules

A dry winter has created drought conditions across Colorado causing Denver Water to adopt a Stage 1 drought resolution. Denver Water will begin enforcing the following summer watering rules on May 1:
  • Only water during the cool of the day - before 10AM and after 6PM
  • Do not water more than 2 days a week until stage 1 drought resolution is lifted
  • Only water dry areas of the yard instead of the entire yard
  • Adjust automatic sprinkler systems throughout the summer, starting with less water in the spring
  • Do not allow water to pool in gutters, streets, and alleys
  • Do not waste water by letting it spray on concrete and asphalt
  • Repair leaking sprinkler systems within 10 days
  • Do not use spray irrigation during rain or strong winds
